MIDEAST-YOM KIPPUR WAR

A destroyed Syrian tank is abandoned in a village on the Golan Heights, in October 1973 two weeks after the beginning of the Yom Kippur War. On October 06, 1973, on the Jewish holiday Yom Kippur, a two-pronged assault on Israel was launched: Egyptian forces stuck eastward across the Suez Canal and pushed Israelis back, while Syrians advanced from the north and had broken through the Israeli lines on the Golan Heights.
