May 20, 1967 The Six-Day War

Hafiz Asad, Minister of Defense of Syria:

Liberation of Palestine

“Our preparations for the aggression have been completed…Our forces are now entirely ready not only to repulse the aggression but to initiate the act of liberation itself and to explode the Zionist presence in the Arab homeland.  The Syrian army, with its finger on the trigger, is united in the view that the battle must be speedily joined.  We now await the signal from the political leadership.  I, as a military man, believe that the time has come to enter into the battle of liberation.”
