Six Unbelievable Days in 1967 - TJS Film

It’s amazing what can be achieved in less than a week! In the 1960s, Israel was very different to the country we know today. Up until the Six Day War in 1967, Israel was divided by a ceasefire line that also divided Jerusalem with neighboring Jordan.

In less than a week, Israel reunited Jerusalem, pushed the Jordanians back to their side of the river, captured the Sinai peninsula, reached the Suez Canal, opened the straits of Tiran and captured the Golan Heights. Not bad for six days’ work.
