Noteworthy، ‘October War’ is also known as the ‘1973 Arab–Israeli War’، was a war fought by the coalition of Arab states led by Egypt and Syria against Israel from October 6 to 25، 1973.
The war began when the Arab coalition launched a joint surprise attack on Israeli positions in the Israeli-occupied territories on Yom Kippur، the holiest day in Judaism، which occurred that year during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan On this specific holiday (unlike any other) the country comes to a complete standstill; both religiously observant Jews and most of the secular majority fast، abstain from any use of fire، electricity، engines، communications….etc.، all road traffic ceases and airports are shut down. Many soldiers also go home from military facilities for the holiday، and Israel is more vulnerable with much of its military on leave.
Egyptian and Syrian forces crossed ceasefire lines to enter the Sinai Peninsula and Golan Heights respectively، which had been captured by Israel in the 1967 Six-Day War. Both the United States and the Soviet Union initiated massive resupply efforts to their respective allies during the war and this led to a near-confrontation between the two nuclear superpowers.
