Description of The Star and the Crescent Client 1.33

On October 6th, 1973, the Jewish state of Israel was attacked by the coordinated forces of Egypt and Syria, with an additional nine Arab states actively supporting the actions of Egypt and Syria. The launch of the attack came on the holiest day of the Jewish calendar, Yom Kippur, which the war later became known as.

The Israelis faced overwhelming numbers; in the Golan Heights the Israeli Defense Forces numbered less than two hundred tanks, and yet they faced nearly 1,400 Syrian tanks. Along the Suez nearly 80,000 Egyptian troops attacked IDF troop concentrations that numbered not in the tens of
thousand, not even in the thousands, but rather in the hundreds

Yet against these odds the IDF not only repulsed the Arab onslaught, but took the fight outside their borders and into Egypt and Syria. In response the Soviet Union began to openly resupply these states, and in turn the United States was forced to resupply Israel. What could have very well turned into World War III though ended on October 22nd, with Resolution 338 of the UN Security Council, calling for an immediate end of hostilities.
