Yom Kippur War

The Yom Kippur War began on October 6, 1973 when Egypt and Syria attacked Israel on the most holy day of the Jewish year. Taking Israel by surprise, the Egyptian and Syrian armies hoped to win back areas they had lost to Israel in 1967. This war is widely considered Israel’s most devastating due to the number of fallen and wounded soldiers, the IDF’s unpreparedness, and mistakes in battle.
