In Israel, the holiday of Yom Kippur is one of the most sacred, because

  • at this time many people are released from the army home,
  • no work is done,
  • transport, radio does not work.
It was at this time that the Arab world (Syria, Egypt, Iraq and Jordan) attacked Israel. There were not enough people in the army - everyone was laid off. It was impossible to notify, radio did not work, and in any case no one turned it on. It was very difficult to arm, the weapons were in parts, and they were attacked. Therefore, many people died at the beginning of the war.

The Arab armies crossed the ceasefire lines in the Sinai Peninsula and the Golan Heights and began moving deeper into Israel.
The first 24-48 hours of success was on the side of the Egyptians and Syrians, but after that the outcome of the war began to lean in favor of Israel. In the second week of the war, the Syrians were completely ousted from the Golan Heights, on the Sinai front, the Israelis "slammed" two Egyptian armies, crossed the Suez Canal (the old ceasefire line) and cut off the 3rd Egyptian army from supply bases. Soon followed by a UN resolution on the ceasefire.

It was a petty attempt to destroy Israel.

Today every soldier receives an automatic weapon and is responsible for it. He always has an automatic with him. In the army and at home. Because you can see in Israel young people in military uniform with a gun all over the cities.
