Miracles in the Six-Day War

Arab nations surrounding Israel vowed to make the blue Mediterranean run red with the blood of Jews.

“We were thinking in terms that the Israelis are going to be thrown to the water,” Ret. General Eitan Ben-Eliyahu said.

On the morning of June 5, 1967 Ben-Eliyahu flew one of the first missions against Egyptian air fields in the Sinai.

“This is a matter of life and death,” he said. “This is a matter of Israel is going to be destroyed. This is matter like this is the third chapter of our Independence Day, ’56, and now ’67.”

“The people were in panic, people were talking about the imminent destruction of the State of Israel, of a war in which there will be an enormous number of casualties; at least 10,000 people will be killed,” Ret. General Shlomo Givas said.

Rabbis in Jerusalem anticipated so many deaths they actually designated all of the public parks in Jerusalem as cemeteries.

According to all the military analysts and pundits, it was to be a lopsided match. The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) consisted of 275,000 troops, compared to the 456,000 soldiers of the combined Iraqi, Syrian, Jordanian, and Egypt armies. Israel was celebrating its Independence Day when the Israeli government received word that Egyptian president Gamal Abdel Nasser was moving heavy artillery into the Sinai Desert. Additionally, large numbers of Egyptian forces were crossing the Suez Canal into the Sinai Desert. The Egyptian government had put its army on alert for an upcoming war. Syria and Jordan, too, moved into a state of alert and announced that they would not sit by idly if Israel attacked Egypt.

Israel was celebrating its Independence Day, on the next day, the Egyptians instructed the United Nations Emergency Force (UNEF), whose stated role was to serve as a buffer between Israel and Egypt, to leave the Sinai Desert. UNEF complied with this directive. A week later, Egypt closed the Straits of Tiran to Israeli vessels and any ships that transported military equipment to Israel. Israel considered this move as an act of war.

Reports of supernatural and angelic interventions on Israel’s behalf came from both the Israelis and the Arabs. The prophet Zechariah had foretold that in the end times, God will defend Israel and send His angels to fight for and with His people. Zechariah 12:8 “In that day shall the Lord defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the House of David shall be as God, as the angel of the Lord before them.”

A story is told of a small Jewish community, Pekiin under siege by Arabs who were determined to wipe them out. However, they encountered huge strange beings with flaming swords, and they ran away in great fear, as the astonished village rabbi watched them.

Gershon Salomon joined the IDF, he led a company in the Golan Heights. In 1958, in a battle with the Syrian Army, Mr. Salomon was injured accidently when, in the heat and confusion of battle, he was run over by a tank. Syrian soldiers are trained to shoot “again” any wounded Israeli soldiers. When they were about to shoot “again” Mr. Salomon, they all suddenly ran away. Later these Syrians soldiers reported to UN officers that they had seen thousands of angels around this IDF officer and had, therefore, fled. It was at this time that Mr. Salomon heard the voice of G-d speaking to him that He was not yet finished with him. Gershon Salomon understood this as a divine call to consecrate himself to the work of the Temple Mount.


Colonel Uri Banari tells his eyewitness account of the conquest of Shechem:
“At the entrance to Shechem stood thousands of Arabs who waved white handkerchiefs and clapped their hands. In our naivete, we returned greetings and smiles. We entered the town and wondered: We are advancing and there is no disorder, no panic, the local armed guards stand by with rifles in their hands keeping order, and the crowds are cheering.”

“Suddenly something happened which changed the entire picture in a moment. One of our officers wanted to disarm an Arab guard. When the latter refused, our officer fired a shot in the air. At that moment, all the crowds disappeared and streets emptied out. The Arabs began sniper fire.”

“I didn’t comprehend what had transpired. Only later, did I understand. The residents of Shechem thought that we were the Iraqi forces who were due to arrive from the direction of Jordan. The numerous enemy tanks were situated on the west side of Shechem. They woke up to their error very late.”

“The Arabs were surprised; the fear of the Jews fell upon them. In Hevron, and in Shechem, in Jenin and in Jericho the Arabs were heavily armed. There was not even one small Arab village without arms. With great haste, the Arabs, however, hid their weapons and didn’t consider using them. They raised their hands up, and flew white flags of surrender from every edifice. The fear of G-d fell upon hundreds of thousands of proud Arabs, who were filled with hatred and loathing for Israel. Only yesterday, they had sworn to fight until their last drop of blood.”

In the late hours of the night, an IDF truck loaded with arms and shells parked next to a Jerusalem building. Its mission was to bring a fresh supply of ammunition to the front line outposts. The element of danger was great in that were the truck to be hit by enemy fire, the subsequent explosions of all the ammo would bring down all the buildings in the area on their inhabitants. Suddenly the whistling of an approaching enemy shell was heard, and the shell, indeed, scored a direct hit on the vehicle.

But the Arab shell did not explode. It remained perched atop the pile of Israeli shells in the truck.

Yisrael, a cab driver who was drafted to fight in the 6-Day War as part of the paratroop unit assigned with conquering the Straits of Tiran, told the following upon his return:

The Israeli soldiers didn’t have to parachute out of the Nord airplanes which took them to the Tiran Straits. They landed like spoiled tourists in the airport, because the Egyptian regiment which was on guard there fled before the Israeli trips were visible on the horizon. After landing, I was sent with another reserves soldier, an electrician, to patrol the area. When we had distanced ourselves two kilometers, an Egyptian half track appeared before us filled with soldiers and mounted with machine guns on every side. We had only light weapons with a few bullets that couldn’t stop the half track for a second. We couldn’t turn back, so we stood there in despair, waited for the first shot, and for lack of a better idea, aimed our guns at them.

But the shots didn’t come.

The half track came to a halt, and we decided to cautiously approach it. We found 18 armed soldiers inside sitting with guns in hand, with a petrified look on their faces. They looked at us with great fear as though begging for mercy. I shouted ‘Hands up!’ As we were marching them and I had returned to a state of calm, I asked the Egyptian sergeant next to me, ‘Tell me, why didn’t you shoot at us?’ He answered, ‘I don’t know. My arms froze – they became paralyzed. My whole body was paralyzed, and I don’t know why.’
It turned out that these soldiers didn’t know that the Straits of Tiran were already in Israeli hands; why didn’t they elminiate us? I don’t have an answer. How can one say that G-d didn’t help us.”

Haaretz Newspaper’s Bottom Line
Following his blow-by-blow analysis, the military correspondent for the secular Haaretz Newspaper summed up the 6-Day War with the admission: “Even a non-religious person must admit this war was fought with help from heaven.” [ibid, p. 445]

A German Viewpoint
A German journalist summarized: “Nothing like this has happened in history. A force including a 1000 tanks, hundreds of artillery cannons, many rockets and fighter jets, and a hundred thousand soldiers armed from head to toe was destroyed in two days in an area covering hundreds of kilometers filled with reinforced outposts and installations. And this victory was carried out by a force that lost many soldiers and much equipment, positions, and vehicles. No military logic or natural cause can explain this monumental occurrence.” [ibid, p. 446.]


On that night, Greengold found himself on the front lines blocking a Syrian tank column in the Golan Heights – completely alone. The Syrians did not know that his tank was the only one blocking them. Over the radio waves he kept referring to himself as “Force Zvika.” The enemy mistakenly thought him to be a battalion.

Zvika, found that he was now standing between his people and annihilation, again. Fierce battles raged all night, Israeli reinforcements came but were all quickly taken out by the Syrians. Greengold was wounded but commandered a tank and hours later took out the last Syrian tank. He was awarded the country’s highest honor.


A rather embellished story is told of Shlomo Goren, the Chief Rabbi of the IDF, who accompanied his troops during the Six-day War. As the Israeli forces fought their way into Jerusalem, pushing back the Jordanian army, Rabbi Goren marched at the front of the troops, holding high a Sefer Torah and a Shofar – a symbolic ram’s horn. Even as the soldiers engaged in battle, shots cracking and ricocheting around him, an unarmed Goren held the holy scrolls aloft and led his troops to the Western Wall of the Temple, where he blew the shofar calling the Jewish people home to Jerusalem. There they prayed to God and thanked them for their delivery. It was God that had secured victory for the Jewish people, handing them the original homelands of the Jewish people – in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria. And by positioning himself at the head of the troops, Rabbi Goren placed religion at the vanguard of Jewish politics.


An Israeli military historian recorded that during the 1973 Yom Kippur war, an Israeli soldier in the Sinai took captive an Egyptian column and led them to where the Israeli troops were. The Egyptian commander was asked why he and his men gave themselves up to the lone Israeli soldier. He responded with surprise; “One soldier? There were thousands of them.” He said that as they neared the Israeli lines, the “soldiers” began disappearing. The Israeli soldier reported that he was by himself when the Egyptian commander and his men surrendered to him. He was totally unaware of the “thousands of soldiers” the Egyptian soldiers saw with him, since he himself did not see them. Psalm 91:10-11 promises that “No evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling, For He shall give his angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways.”

The documentary shows an eye witness account; Commander David Yinni, during the 1973 Yom Kippur war, preparing to retreat from the Syrian army, when he realised that he and his men were trapped in the middle of a minefield. He ordered his men to clear the mines using their bayonets, crawl on the ground and dig 30 inches deep, carefully disengaging the mines. The slightest mistake and they were in peril of being blown up. One of his men prayed. Suddenly, a windstorm came upon them. It was so strong that it lifted up their tanks and rocked them. By the time the storm moved on, it had literally blown 30 inches of topsoil off. The Israeli soldiers could see every single mine and quickly made their escape.

God’s protection over Israel is also for nations and people who believe in Him and worship Him as the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords.

“This is a question”, I would like to make a copy of this article, so I can share it with my church?

During a time when people seem to be down, this is a wonderful account of how The Lord our God cares for his people. Be blessed! Let every man be aliar but let the word of God be true.

Our prayers are with the nation of Israel and all of Gods children through the world. Let us pray that one day, the day of peace will be with us as we worship the king of kings and rest in his arms.

Let us praise God for all he has done. For what he has done for one, he will do for all who claim him and call upon him.

Five months ago our home burned down, a person showed up no one knew, he had no vehicle. We were living in a small town. He wanted to be sure we were out of the burning house. I heard the Lord say get out now or you won’t make it. My dog had hid under the bed. I had to go and leave her, very painful thing. Gods children are like him, with love in their heart.

My husband and I survived, we lost our dog but God sent help to us. I had ask him a week or so before why do people account that their angels help them, but that know one had showed up to help us with some heavy tribulation we were facing. My neighbors were the first to let me know they believed the person was an angel of the Lord. He didn’t have a sword but I believe by faith that he was a servant of God.

Who can be against Gods children when he be for us.

Again this is one of the most beutiful stories I ever read other then the Bible.
God bless Pattie Farm

Comment by maribeth

[…] **we grew up in a church that sends missionaries to Israel and one of them have some fantastic stories from veterans and survivors of that war. There were numerous sightings and testimonies of angel sightings (both from Arabs and Israelis) in the battlefield during that time (there are some online).  […]

From my childhood, I’ve always been moved by the mighty acts of God; crossing of the red sea, plagues of Egypt, miracles of the prophets Elijah and Elisha, that of Jesus The Christ, I can’t enumerate all of them here but modern day miracles blow me away, especially when it’s for the Jews. Jehovah be praised for all eternity.

[…] 有關以色列軍人經歷所謂天使的拯救時有所聞(註2),但是那些天使的性質是甚麼就無法証實。使徒約翰說:「親愛的弟兄啊,一切的靈,你們不可都信,總要試驗那些靈是出於神的不是,因為世上有許多假先知已經出來了。」(約一 4:1),而使徒保羅說:「連撒但也裝作光明的天使。所以他的差役,若裝作仁義的差役,也不算希奇。」(參林後11:14,15),所以撒但為要達到迷惑人的目的而作出一些仁義的事情如拯救色列軍人的性命是不足為奇的。但是很多人卻不問情由就把這些傳言接受,並確定是從 神來的,這是十分危險的。「愚蒙人是話都信;通達人步步謹慎。」(箴14:15),「但要凡事察驗,善美的要持守」(帖前5:21)。對那些見到天使的人,我們是不能盲目地接受他們的見證是從 神來的。我們必須要問:究竟他們的見證能否經得起神話語的考驗呢?人當以訓誨和法度為標準;他們所說的,若不與此相符,必不得見晨光(賽8:20)。 […]
