The Six-Day War (Hebrew: מלחמת ששת הימים, Milhemet Sheshet Ha Yamim; النكسة, an-Naksah, "The Setback" or حرب ۱۹٦۷, Ḥarb 1967, "War of 1967"), also known as the June War, 1967 Arab–Israeli War, or Third Arab–Israeli War, was fought between June 5 and 10, 1967 by Israel and the neighboring states of Egypt (aka the United Arab Republic), Jordan, and Syria's army had a total strength of 75,000 and amassed them along the Syrian border..100 Iraqi tanks and an infantry division were readied near the Jordanian border.. Two squadrons of fighter-aircraft, Hawker Hunters and MiG 21, were rebased adjacent to the Jordanian border..The Jordanian Armed Forces included 11 brigades totalling some 55,000 troops, equipped with some 300 modern Western tanks.. Of these, nine brigades (45,000 troops, 270 tanks, 200 artillery pieces) were deployed in the West Bank, including the elite armoured 40th, and two in the Jordan Valley..100 Iraqi tanks and an infantry division were readied near the Jordanian border.. Two squad rons of fighter-aircraft, Hawker Hunters and MiG 21, were rebased adjacent to the Jordanian border..The Arab air forces were aided by volunteer pilots from the Pakistan Air Force acting in independent capacity, and by some aircraft from Libya, Algeria, Morocco, Kuwait, and Saudi Arabia to make up for the massive losses suffered on the first day of the war..The Arab air forces were aided by volunteer pilots from the Pakistan Air Force acting in independent capacity,and PAF pilots shot down several Israeli planes..The central themes of this are conformity, peer pressure, and the perils of leadership...

The Khepresh was made from cloth or leather stained blue and was covered with small yellow sun discs..Like many other royal crowns an uraeus was fastened to its front..The earliest known mention of the khepresh is on the stela Cairo JE 59635 [CG 20799] which dates to the reign of pharaoh Neferhotep III, during the Second Intermediate Period.. In this and other examples from the same era, the word is written with a determinative that represents the cap crown, a lower and less elaborate type of crown.. Images of the khepresh from the reign of Ahmose I, first king of the New Kingdom and the Eighteenth Dynasty, show a headdress that is taller than the cap crown and more angular than later forms of the khepresh.. This crown continued to evolve during the early Eighteenth Dynasty, attaining its best-known form in the reigns of Hatshepsut and Thutmose III..After Amenhotep III's reign – and particularly during the 18th and 19th Dynasties – it came into fashion and was even adopted by some pharaohs as a primary crown..The crown ceased to be depicted in the Kushite Dynasty (747 to 656 BCE)..During the New Kingdom, pharaohs were shown with this crown in military circumstances.. However, some scholars think that the crown was also meant to evoke the divine power of the pharaoh, and was thereby worn to religiously situate kings as manifestations of gods on earth..Blue is the colour between violet and green on the optical spectrum of visible light..Egypt (aka United Arab Republic), Jordan, and Syria..2,504 Tanhks-Egypt, Syria and Iraq used T-34/85, T-54, T-55, PT-76, and SU-100/152 World War II-vintage self-propelled guns. Jordan used M-47, M-48, and M-48A1 Patton tanks.. Panzer IV (used by Syria)..Two squadrons of fighter-aircraft, Hawker Hunters and MiG 21, were rebased adjacent to the Jordanian border.. With the exception of Jordan, the Arabs relied principally on Soviet weaponry..Jordan's army was equipped with American weaponry, and its air force was composed of British aircraft..Of particular concern to the Israelis were the 30 Tu-16 "Badger" medium bombers, capable of inflicting heavy damage on Israeli military and civilian centers..

Israel IDF 800 Tanhks..M50 and M51 Shermans, M48A3 Patton, Centurion, AMX-13.. The Centurion was upgraded with the British 105 mm L7 gun prior to the war.. The Sherman also underwent extensive modifications including a larger 105mm medium velocity, French gun, redesigned turret, wider tracks, more armour, and upgraded engine and suspension..Israeli weapons were mainly of Western origin.. Its air force was composed principally of French aircraft while its armoured units were mostly of British and American design and manufacture.. Some infantry weapons, including the ubiquitous Uzi, were of Israeli origin..Israel's first and most critical move was a surprise attack on the Egyptian Air Force.. Initially, both Egypt and Israel announced that they had been attacked by the other country..On June 5 at 7:45 Israeli time, as civil defense sirens sounded all over Israel, the IAF launched Operation Focus (Moked)..Although Israeli morale and international prestige was greatly increased by the outcome of the war, the resulting displacement of civilian populations would have long-term consequences..300,000 Palestinians fled the West Bank and about 100,000 Syrians left the Golan to become refugees.. Across the Arab world, Jewish minority communities were expelled, with refugees going to Israel or EuRope..The Yomp Kippur prayer service includes several unique aspects..Total abstention from food and drink as well as keeping the other traditions begins at sundown, and ends after nightfall the following day..Before sunset on Yom Kippur eve, worshipers gather in the synagogue..A recitation of the sacrificial service of the Temple in Jerusalem traditionally features prominently in both the liturgy and the religious thought of the holiday..Rosewood, Mahogany, Teak?.
