IAF planes commence the attack on several key axes in the Egyptian front: the northern axis (Qantara – Rumani), the central axis (Bir Gafgafa – Suez Canal) and the southern axis (Nakhel – Mitleh – Suez Canal). The planes score hits against armor and convoys of trucks and other vehicles. Close air support is provided in a relatively small area, due to the nature of the IDF advance on this day.
