Which areas were gained by Israel after the Six Day War?
Keeping this in view, what land did Israel gain in the Six Day War?
Six-Day War: After the war In a pre-emptive attack on Egypt that drew Syria and Jordan into a regional war in 1967, Israel made massive territorial gains capturing the West Bank, Gaza Strip, Golan Heights and the Sinai Peninsula up to the Suez Canal.
Subsequently, question is, how did the borders of Israel change after the 1967 Six Day War? Over the course of the Six-Day War, Israel captured and occupied the Sinai Peninsula, West Bank, Gaza Strip and Golan Heights, dramatically changing the territorial facts of the Middle East. Only, not quite. The pre-1967 borders have been surprisingly resilient to the realities created by the war.
People also ask, what territory did Israel not gain in the 6 Day War?
Israel returned the Sinai Peninsula to Egypt in 1982 as part of a peace treaty and then withdrew from the Gaza Strip in 2005, but it has continued to occupy and settle other territory claimed in the Six-Day War, most notably the Golan Heights and the West Bank.
What war got Israel the biggest increase in territory?
