SEE PHOTO----- Three COMPLETE ORIGINAL 48-page front news sections of a NEWSPAPER, the NY Times dated Une 6, 7, and 8, 1967. These three newspapers have headlines and DETAILED COVERAGE of the first three days of the SIX DAY WAR between ISRAEL and its ARAB NEIGHBORS .

The Six-Day War of June 5-10, 1967 was a war between the Israel army and the armies of the neighboring states of Egypt , Jordan , and Syria . The Arab states of Iraq , Saudi Arabia , Sudan , Tunisia , Morocco and Algeria also contributed troops and arms. At the war's end, Israel had gained control of the Sinai Peninsula , the Gaza Strip , the West Bank , East Jerusalem , and the Golan Heights . The results of the war affect the geopolitics of the region to this day.

Following numerous border clashes between Israel and its Arab neighbours, particularly Syria, Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser expelled the United Nations Emergency Force (UNEF) from the Sinai Peninsula in May 1967. The peacekeeping force had been stationed t since 1957, following a British-French-Israeli invasion of Egypt which was launched during the Suez Crisis . Egypt amassed 1,000 tanks and nearly 100,000 soldiers on the Israeli border and closed the Straits of Tiran to all ships flying Israeli flags or carrying strategic materials, receiving strong support from other Arab countries. Israel responded with a similar mobilization that included the call up of 70,000 reservists to augment the regular IDF forces.

On June 5, 1967, Israel launched a preemptive attack on Egypt and Syria. Jordan, which had signed a mutual defence treaty with Egypt on May 30, then attacked western Jerusalem and Netanya .

In Arabic, the war is called ( Arabic : حرب الأيام الستة ‎, Ḥarb al‑Ayyam as‑Sitta or more commonly Arabic : حرب 1967 ‎, Ḥarb 1967 . In Hebrew : מלחמת ששת הימים ‎, Milhemet Sheshet Ha‑Yamim ). It is also known as the 1967 Arab-Israeli War, the Third Arab-Israeli War, Six Days' War, an‑Naksah (The Setback), or the June War.
