1973: The Yom Kippur War, a 20-day war fought between Israel and a coalition of Arab states led by Egypt and Syria, ends with a ceasefire, three days after a United Nations-brokered ceasefire fell apart. The war began on Oct. 6 when Egyptian and Syrian forces crossed ceasefire lines to enter the Israeli-held Sinai Peninsula and Golan Heights respectively, which had been captured and occupied since the 1967 Six-Day War.
