For many years Syria had fortified and built up their defenses on these heights over-looking the northern flank of Israel. During this time the Syrians had almost constantly shelled Israeli kibbutzes and communities from this elevated position. When war broke out Israel was determined to capture it and safeguard its northern border from these Syrian attacks.
On the morning of June 9, 1967, three days after the war had begun, Israel attacked. First with sustained air strikes and then with infantry, artillery and armour including their elite paratroopers. The fighting was hard and bloody but ultimately successful.
Note:All the K&C Israeli Paras are wearing the locally-designed and made olive drab combat uniforms. Some photos show Paras wearing a mix of French-made “Lizard” pattern combat suits but these were beginning to be phased out at this time. The fighting order worn by Israeli troops in ’67 still shows a ‘mix’ of American, British, French and Israeli items. Para helmets too were a combination of American and British steel helmets usually covered with netting.
The price shown is US$ and A$ price will be calculated at time of purchase.
