Battle of the Sinai (1973)

The Battle of the Sinai was one of the most consequential battles of the Yom Kippur War (October 6 to 25, 1973). An Egyptian attacking force that advanced beyond their line of defense at the Bar-Lev Line was repulsed with heavy losses by Israeli forces. This prompted the Israelis to launch Operation Abiray-Lev (Stouthearted Men) the next day, penetrating the Egyptian line of defense and crossing the Suez Canal.
