The Six-Day War between Egypt, Syria, Lebanon and Israel took place in June 1967 and resulted in Israeli forces taking control of large areas including East Jerusalem, parts of the West Bank, and the Sinai Peninsula. Hundreds of thousands of people became refugees.
The war remains a frequent topic of political discussion, with the phrase “return to 67 lines” being commonly evoked.
In preparation for the Six-Day War, Israeli military rabbis consecrated public spaces in preparation for use as mass graves, reciting prayers to sanctify these sites. Following the swift unexpected outcomes, their intended purpose was largely forgotten.
"Mirage" was also the name of the principle Israeli aircraft used in the war.
