7:45 am, June 5th, 1967. Operation Focus. The Israeli military launches its first strike against an Egyptian airbase. As the day progresses, swift Israeli raids decimate the air capabilities of Jordan, Syria, and Iraq. By nightfall, Israel has unchallenged dominion over the airspace from Cairo, Egypt, to Damascus, Syria. By the 11th of June, when a ceasefire is brokered by the U.N., Israel has taken control of the Sinai Peninsula from Egypt, the West Bank from Jordan, the Gaza Strip from the Palestinians, and the Golan Heights region from Syria.
The 6 Days War of 1967 is one of the best examples of preemptive warfare. Israel struck hard, struck fast, and dominated a set of underprepared and overconfident adversaries. It’s going to be one of the primary examples for this year of Stoa LD debate, because the resolution is that Preemptive warfare is morally justified. The purpose of this article is to provide you with a broad overview of the topic, and to prepare you to delve deeper into this resolution.
