1967 – War of Attrition


Stalemate of Hostilities: The 1967-1970 War of Attrition between Israel and Egypt

The War of Attrition (1967-1970) between Israel and Arab states, primarily Egypt, followed the 1967 Six-Day War. It involved artillery duels, small-scale incursions, and escalated to more intensive conflicts along the Suez Canal. Egyptian President Nasser initiated the war to compel Israel to withdraw from Sinai, with hostilities including large-scale shelling, aerial warfare, and commando raids. The war concluded in August 1970 with a ceasefire, leaving frontiers unchanged and failing to advance peace negotiations.
