    Closing straits of Tiran was an ACT OF WAR. I have actually seen remains of the coastal guns the Egyptians used. They looked quite awesome, even though the IDF destroyed them when she won... On May 19, 1967, Egypt expelled UNEF observers,[16] and deployed 100,000 soldiers in the Sinai Peninsula.[17] It then closed the straits of Tiran to Israeli shipping,[18][19] catapulting the region back to the pre-1956 status quo. On May 30, 1967, Jordan entered into the mutual defense pact between Egypt and Syria. President Nasser declared: "Our basic objective is the destruction of Israel. The Arab people want to fight."[20] In response, on June 5 Israel sent almost all of its planes on a preemptive mission in Egypt. The Israeli Air Force (AIF) destroyed most of the surprised Egyptian Air Force, then turned east to pulverize the Jordanian, Syrian and Iraqi air forces.[21] This strike was the crucial element in Israel's victory in the Six-Day War
