War of Attrition (1967-1970)

A name given to low-intensity warfare conducted by Egypt along the Suez Canal frontier, as well as Israeli responses that included airstrikes and commando raids, following Israel's occupation of the Sinai Peninsula during the 1967 Six Day War. The war ended with a ceasefire in August 1970 with no change to the territorial status quo.
