by WikiPeace editor  21.01.2013 A series of confrontations between Egypt and Israel between 1967-70, in an Egyptian attempt to regain Sinai, which eventually developed into scale shelling along the Suez Canal (which alongside  its eastern part Israel set up the Bar Lev line), extensive aerial warfare and commando raids. During the war Israel also attempted an attack the PLO camp Karameh in Jordan. The war ended in a ceasefire in August 1970, with between 500-1,400 Israeli casualties and between 3,000-10,000 Egyptian casualties.
