The Six-Day War was fought in 1967 by Israel and the neighboring states of Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq, and Syria.
Primary Source: "During the six day war I was working with a construction company in Sinai. On the day before the war started on every radio channel Israeli and Arabic there was talk about a big war. It was so terrifying because my family, friends, and I all thought that since the enemy was so strong that Israel would lose and no longer exist. After the first day, when they announced that Israel had held off the Arabic forces and it gave everyone strength hearing this. On the third day, Israel destroyed most of the enemy tanks and the army began to move further south pushing the enemy forces back. While we were forcing the Arabic armies back we gained more and more pride in that we were holding off such a large and powerful army. And every day we moved further and further south and after six days from the beginning of the war Israel conquered Eastern Jerusalem which was controlled by Arabic forces."
