May 23, 1967 The Six-Day War



President Nasser of Egypt:

“Yesterday, the armed forces occupied Sharem el-Sheik.  What is the significance of the occupation of Sharem el-Sheik by the armed forces? It means that we are giving tangible expression to our rights and our sovereignty over the Gulf of Aqaba…

And there can be no question that we will allow under any circumstances the Israeli flag to pass through the Gulf of Aqaba.”
