Russia fed Egypt and Syria false intel that Israel intended to attack them. Both nations responded with chest-thumping, jumping up and down, and provocative actions. Israel, lacking good intel proceeded to see an imminent threat which cause it to mobilize. That mobilization led to more provocations by Egypt and Syria. Israel could not maintain the mobilization forever which eventually led Eshkol to buckle and allow a first strike. Israel, striking an unprepared Egypt and Syria won a great victory.
