The Arab-Israeli conflict is something that has been going on for years. It initially started in 1948 over territory land claims. Israel claims that because the Arabs rejected the United Nations Partition Plan causing Arabs to fight defensively and forcing Palestinians out of their own countries. This lead to an air battle led by the Israeli's shooting down syrian aircrafts. In retaliation Egypt offered to help Syria defend and protect themselves and their land is the Israelis were to ever strike again. The Suez War of 1956 was also a reaction of this. Efforts were made to abolish the Egyptian blockades, eventually leaving it to the Egyptians. Other significant historical events in line with the Arab- Israeli conflict are: the six day war of 1967, Yom Kippur War of 1973 and the 1982 War of Lebanon.
