The need to preempt Iran and export gas to Egypt was the reason the government gave to push through its controversial plan for Israel's natural gas. Now, this reason may no longer exist.08:52 31.08.15 | 1 comments
You are correct: the strike was meant for Egypt only. However, the first day of the war Nasser asked Syria to launch an assault against Israel resulting in Syria`s defeat. Iraq didn`t even make it to the frontline. As for Jordan: the Israeli military warned Hussein to stay out of the fighting (message was sent for delivery to the Norwegian commander of the UN peace-keeping force). Unfortunately Hussein ignored the warning, dragging himself into the conflict, giving Israel the opportunity to re-unite Jerusalem as Israels capital.
