Operation ‘Raviv’: IDF forces assault the eastern bank of the Gulf of Suez in APCs and tanks that had been captured in the Six Day War. Skyhawks from ‘Ha’emek’ Squadron provide close air support, attacking various installations, SAMs and AA emplacements. Maj. Haggai Ronen’s plane is hit in the course of the attack and his whereabouts are a mystery. Helicopters are sent to search for him, in vain: he is listed as Missing In Action. Operation ‘Raviv’ leads Nasser to sack the Egyptian top command, including the Chief of General Staff, Gen. Ahmed Ismail Ali, and the Commander of the Navy.
