Eleven years after the Suez Crisis, tensions were running high between Israel and its neighbors - namely, Jordan, Syria, Egypt, and Iraq. It culminated in the Third Arab-Israeli War, more famously known as the Six-Day War, starting on June 10, 1967. It resulted in crushing losses for the Arab nations with the death of over 18,000 troops. On the other hand, Israel suffered approximately 700 casualties.
From soldiers to prisoners to refugees, hundreds of thousands of people were affected by the Six-Day War and its repercussions. Historians believe that the conflict triggered a new wave of contention between Israelis and Palestinians that would haunt them for years to come. The photos below depict the unforgiving nature of war and its brutal consequences.
