Fact of the day 6-5-15

Today’s Israel Fact of the Day- On the morning of June 5, 1967 the Israel Air Force sent a wave of low-flying Israeli jets to destroy the Egyptian Air Force and airfields, initiating a pre-emptive strike in order to prevent the alliance of Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Iraq from carrying out a potentially devastating attack on Israel. The IAF’s opening strike was a dramatic success, paralyzing the air force that had posed the greatest military threat to Israel. A similar strike was initiated against Syria later in the day, destroying two thirds of that country’s air force in one comprehensive offensive. Share to teach your friends about Israel.
