The Maintenance of Calm in the Middle East since the Six Day War (1967– )
In the War which began on 5 June 1967, Israel inflicted crushing defeats on the three Arab neighbours with whom she fought, seizing the Sinai Desert from Egypt, the West Bank of the Jordan River from the state of that name, and the Golan Heights from Syria. During the next six years several small UN peacekeeping missions helped — when the parties were disposed to accept such help — to maintain calm on a number of these fronts (see Map 48).
