These happened while the state of Israel has experienced remarkably economic and military growth during the 1990s. The protection of the people in particular would have to be instated as terrorism, although not an important factor in the war, has claimed its victims with the passing of time. Terrorism was dealt with harshly in Israel, people believed to have connections to terrorists being abused and deported and human rights being neglected.

One of the most terrible wars in Arab-Israeli history was the 1973-74 war that took place on the 6 of October, on the Jewish day of Yom Kippur, hence its name — the Yom Kippur War.

The 70s were bringing distress among the Israelis, as terrorism was at its best and the Arabs were constantly making war threats at Israel and even at the U.S.

with cutting off oil supplies. On the 6th of October Egypts President Anwar Sadat led his troops to war against Israel and it now faced war with almost every Arab country with its troops by a large amount outnumbered. While during the first two days the Israelis had been pushed back almost arriving in the populated zones, theyve started a counter-offensive that forced a serious retreat from Syria.

Having witnessed the conflict, the Soviets and the Americans, decided to get involved in the war by supplying the countries with weapons and turning it into a personal war. It were the superpowers also that later ended the war by convincing the two parts to sign a cease-fire accord.
