On June the 5th 1967, the Israeli army started their offense on the Egyptian land (Sinai).
During that 6 day war, Egypt lost 15,000 soliders, thousands of casualties and thousands were POW (Prisoners Of War).
Robert McCloskey (official spokesman for the US State department) said a verbal testimony about those historical moments:
Some of us within the situation room were pleased, and were cheering every time we see the latest Egyptian army casualty figures on our monitors.
Eugene Rostow turned to us and said: "Gentlemen, please remember... we are non-biased by words, thoughts and actions".
...and then everyone in the room burst into laughter.
