    Arab–Israeli conflict was a series of wars between Israelcube and the Arabballs.

    History

    The conflict began in the context of British domination and division of the Arab world and the rise of Zionism and their presence in Palestine, tensions appeared because while Zionists wanted a state in the region the Arabs saw it as a threat of their soveirgnity under the lands they lived.

    Following the tension between these political groups, UNball split British Palestinecube into a Jewish and an Arab state, however, Arabs didn’t agree because they claimed it was an unfair division since they would be forced to leave lands that they were a majority, then All-Palestine Governmentball was created.

    All-Palestine Governmentball asked help from Jordanball, Egyptball, Syriaball, and Lebanonball in order to remove Israelcube from the Arab lands, while Israelcube received funding of USAball to assist in the war. The Arabballs lost and All-Palestine Governmentball had part of its clay conquered by Israelcube and others joined Egyptball and Jordanball.

    After more fighting in 1967, Israelcube took over West Bankball and Gazaball from Jordanball and Egyptball, then in 1988 Palestineball was born as the reincarnation of All-Palestine Governmentball and claimed the old Arab territories, so Arabballs recognized its claim while Israelcube's friends recognize its claim.

    Today, the situation is really unstable and it is possible that another war can happen. However Israelcube has much more friendly relations with Egyptball and Jordanball nowadays, and there has been a lot more conflict between Israelcube's enemies.

    Conflicts

    1948 Arab-Israeli War

    The 1948 Arab-Israeli War was the Arab Leagueball's invasion of the newly born Israelcube in order to help the Palestinian nationalists during the 1947-1949 Palestine war and the first Arab-Israeli War in general.

    The war triggered many demographic changes throughout the region, as several thousand Palestinians were displaced from Israel, and many Jews immigrated to Israelcube, as they were expelled from various Arab countries through the Middle East.

    Suez Crisis

    The Suez Crisis, or the Second Arab-Israeli War, was an invasion of Egyptball by Israelcube, followed by UKball and Franceball, in order to regain western control of the Suez Canal, and to remove Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser.

    Basically, } UKball and Franceball allowed  Israelcube to invade the Sinai Peninsula and Suez Canal since they were losing money to help the colonies, they also wanted to overthrow the leader of Egyptball. The 3-Country Alliance didn't even consult the allies. So the invasion was set. 175,000 soldiers from  Israelcube invaded from the west, while 45,000 soldiers from  UKball, and 34,000 soldiers from  Franceball invaded the ports to the Suez Canal, without any obstacles. At Suez Canal, the Egyptians rallied as much there to stop the invasion of Suez Canal. However, Egyptball told the allies, and NATOball threatening to kick them out, and withdrew in Late November due to political pressure, thus it was a coalition military victory, but Egyptian political victory.

    Six-Day War

    The Six-Day War was a short Arab–Israeli conflict, lasted 6 days, where Israelcube conquered new lands, which is Sinai.

    On May 13, 1967  USSRball falsely informed  Egyptball about concentration of 11-13 brigades of the  Israeli Defence Forcescube with the intent to strike  Syriaball. In response,  Egyptball started concentrating forces along the border with  Israelcube in Sinai and on May 16 demanded UNball peacekeeping forces to leave the peninsula. At the same time,  Israelcube refused the request of  UNball on deployment of the UNEF on their side of the border either.

    In the next few days  Egyptball, Syriaball, Jordanball, and Sudanball started mobilization of their forces, Iraqi Republicball (1958–68) sent expeditionary forces to , and expressed its willingness to participate in military actions. But the turning point, which made the full scale confrontation inevitable was the decision of  Egyptball to block  Israelcube's ships from entering the Straits of Tiran from May 22-23 as it did before the Suez Crisis. On June 1,  Israelcube established a "National Unity Government", which on June 4 decided to go to war. 

    On the Sinai front,  Egyptball's forces consisted of seven divisions: four armored, two infantry, and one mechanized infantry.  Egyptball had 100,000 troops and 900-950 tanks in the Sinai, so  Israelcube concentrated three divisions consisting of six armored, one infantry, and one mechanized infantry and three paratrooper brigades for a total of 70,000 men and 700 tanks along this front.  Israelcube's plan was to catch  Egyptball off-guard by attacking simultaneously with air strikes, and attacking through the Northern and Central routes in the Sinai Peninsula instead of the Central and Southern Routes used during the Sinai War. On the 5th of June, at 7:50 a.m., the northernmost  Israelcube's division, consisting of three brigades and commanded by  Major General Israel Tai started its advance towards  Arishball through  Gazaball with an aim to encircle  Khan Yunisball, while the paratroopers were ordered to take  Rafahball. Initally,  Egyptball offered little resistance, since their intelligence concluded that, this was a diversion rather than a main attack. However, soon resistance against the  60th armoured brigade ramped up. This did not stop the  Israeli forces from reaching  Khan Yunisball Railway Junction in 4 Hours. Afterwards the  IDF advanced on  Sheikh Zuweidball and defeated fierce  Egyptball resistance thanks to air domination. The road on  Arishball was open and by 8 AM on the 6th of July, elements of the  79th Armored Battalion and the  7th Brigade entered the "suspiciously quiet city" aka the outskirts of  Arishball. Suddenly  Egyptballs started firing from the balconies, windows and there was a heavy battle going on for control of the city and the  IDF was only able to take full control of the city after reinforcements were sent. The northernmost division then spilt into two parts. One of them continued the advance on the Suez Canal, while the second group turned south and captured  Bir Lahfanball and  Jabal Libniball.

    Further south on the 6th of June, the 14 thousand men 150 tank strong  Israeli 38th Armored Division under  Major-General Ariel Sharon was confronted by the  Egyptian 2nd Infantry Division under  Major-General Sa'adi Nagib, consisting of 16,000 troops and 90 tanks.  Israelcube successfully advanced towards  Abu Ageilaball. The  paratroopers landed behind  Egyptball's positions and sew enough confusion to weaken the artillery of  Egyptball's defence, which opened the way of the  IDF to capture  Um Katefball. It was followed by a fierce close tank battle, which ended up in  Israelcube's victory and the capture of  Abu Ageilaball with 40 of  Egyptball's and 19 of  Israelcube's tanks destroyed.  Egyptball's forces in Sinai were still largely intact, but the field marshal  Abdel Hakim Amer panicked and ordered retreat of all units from Sinai after hearing the fall of  Abu Ageilaball.  This order did not elaborate on the sequence and manner of the retreat, which only decreased the defensive capabilities of  Egyptball's troops. During the following days the  IDF continued its advance westward and inflicted heavy losses on  Egyptball. Despite episodic heavy resistance by  Egyptball as in Bin Gafgafaball, the napalm bombing by the  Israelcube's aviation and uncontrolled retreat weakened the morale of  Egyptball's troops. Instead of catching and retreating  Egyptball, the  IDF decided to capture 3 passes from Sinai to  Egyptball's mainland and face   Egyptball's troops there. Although  IDF was not able to stop all  Egyptball's troops from crossing, these passes became a killing ground for  Egyptball's troops with 10,000 being killed in one day alone. The capture of Sinai was completed by the fall of  Sharm El-Sheikball  on June 7th and  Ras Sudarball on June 8th. On June 9th, UNball's security council achieved armistice between sides. As such, the war was a decisive victory for Israelcube, they achieved total air domination and also caught Egyptball by surprise.

    Israelcube wanted to avoid confrontation with Jordanball and Syriaball before defeating Egypt, but the offers of neutrality to Jordanball were rejected, as the Egyptian president Nasser persuaded King Hussein of Jordan that, Egypt had an advantage against Israelcube. On the morning of 5 June both sides started the fire, but Israelcube attempted a last grasp attempt to avoid confrontation by passing its request of peace through the UN representative Bull. King Hussein countered that it was already too late and the Jordanian air force and aviation was already on the way. Jordanian and Iraqi aviation started shelling Israeli controlled West Jerusalemcube, which caused 16, military and 20 civilian casualties, with 900 buildings damaged. Israelcube responded with its own attack within the Operation Focus, which damaged military aviation infrastructure of Jordanball and secured the Israeli air dominance. East Jerusalemball was controlled by Jordanball at the time and the Jordanian army took position in the UN residency - the Government House to fire on the Israeli sector. The Jerusalem Brigade's Reserve Battalion 161 of Israelcube took the Government house despite heavy losses and forced Jordanians to retreat to Bethlehemball. Later on that day, Israelcube encircled East Jerusalemball with the Jerusalem Brigade from the south, and the mechanized Harel Brigade and 55th Paratroopers Brigade from the north. Fierce battle happened for the Ammunition Hill. Jordanian resistance was so strong that, the IDF lost all but two of their attacking officers and achieved their goal only after 4 hours. 55th Paratroopers Brigade afterwards drove eastwards, reaching Mount Scopus and defeating the other Jordanian positions around the American colony. Towards the evening of June 5, the mechanized Harel Brigade succeeded in taking Latrunball and Ramallahball. Also, the 163rd Infantry Battalion secured Abu Tor and cut the Old City from Bethlehemball and Hebronball. On June 7 the Israeli Minister of Defense Moshe Dayan ordered the IDF to enter the Old City despite reservations and concerns of the Israeli Government. The fighting was conducted solely by the paratroopers out of fear of the destruction of holy sites. IDF took control of the Old City after little resistance. Judeaball, Hebronball, Bethlehemball, and Nablusball were also captured by the IDF on June 7. Remnants of the Jordanian army fell back into Jordanball. Israelcube was victorious on this front as well.

    Syriaball also believed Nasser about  Egyptball's early success in the conflict and sent its aviation to attack Galilee. This attack was intercepted by the Israeli aviation. A minor ground attack was also attempted by Syriaball in an attempt to capture the water plants at Tel Danball, Danball, and She'ar Yashuvball. This was repulsed by the IDF as well. Israeli air domination, lack of communication by Syrian units, tanks being too wide for bridges were among the causes of unsuccessful attack by Syriaball. This caused them to abandon any attempts to make ground offensive on Israelcube and airstrikes were used and chosen as a method instead. However, on the evening of June 5 Israelcube stroke Syriaball's airfields within Operation Focus, destroying 2/3 of Syriaball's airforce and forcing the rest out of conflict. The Israeli leadership was unsure on whether to attack Syriaball or not. On one hand Syriaball was using the Golan Heights to shell Israelcube, on the other hand it would have been a literally uphill battle against an entrenched and fortified enemy. But the intelligence about weakened positions of Syriaball in general in Golan Heights in particular led Dayan to order an offensive on Golan without government authorization. Israelcube's offensive started with air strikes which severely damaged defensive infrastructure and morale of Syriaball's army. The 8th Armored Brigade, led by Colonel Albert Mandler, advanced into Golan Heights from Givat HaEm. Heavy fighting in unfavorable terrain led to numerous casualties on both sides, but with the help of the aviation and air force from IDF, they ultimately captured the Zaura, Qala, and Ein Fit fortresses. In the central sector, the Israeli 181st Battalion captured the strongholds of Dardara and Tel Hillai after fierce fighting. By the evening of June 9, Israelcube reached the plateau, which allowed reinforcements to come. Israelcube had 8 brigades by dawn ready for an assault on the second line of defenses. Soon the ceasefire was negotiated around the so called "Purple Line".

    By 11 June, all military actions stopped. Up to 983 Isrealis, 15,000 Egyptians, 700 Jordanians, and 2,500 Syrians were killed in action. Israelcube gained a huge victory. It seized the Gaza Strip, the Sinai Peninsula, the West Bank of the Jordan River (including East Jerusalemball), and the Golan Heights. About one million Arabs were placed under Israelcube's direct control in the newly captured territories. Israelcube's victory came as a result of a more efficient military leadership, better preparation of troops and intelligence. But the Six-Day War was no means the last conflicts of the Arab–Israeli conflict and merely troops and intelligence. Six years later, it escalated to another war called the Yom Kippur War.
