two thirds of their tanks destroyed or abandoned on the battlefields the syrians were in full retreat back where they had started before hostilities began. a sort. of how less of a one day the syrians were overtaken by enthusiasm during the first two days thinking they could overpower israel that meant taking over the goal line of an approaching occupied palestine given that they very thought they could end the war but the overstretched themselves and lost a lot of tanks during those first three days of it it s f a year. however and sinai to the south egyptians had used their success on day one to secure a defensive bridgeheads. with two field armies dug in across the canal the second in the north and the third in the south they were prepared for the inevitable israeli counterattack.
by the end of day two to israel's most famous generals ariel sharon and i've done had arrived at the suez front. each with an arm and division of over three hundred tanks. they were ready to launch a carefully planned counterattack. a downs division to the north would sweep south to expel the egyptian second army from its bridgehead. then once out on how to push the egyptians back across the canal share owns division would move against the. dami to repeat the process in the south.
at zero nine hundred hours on oct eighth. the attack began. suddenly we see that tanks of our brothers movie. in the plane but it's not the division which isn't just the forces of things. it's not a division on that that. it's not in the right direction instead from north to south they come through us from east to west and we see just before our eyes a terrible enemy fire shells in the desert books of fire around any tank. but to really save those to
fire with fire that them with every weapon we had it was a massacre a massacre of all sorts of weapons then to turn saigon the size of three g.'s of the jets enough to do soldiers were moving like birds like goods jumping from one tree to another they would hide behind the ramp to the tank was fifty meters away and within range it then they fired at it they would knock their two one out then move on to the next step and a lot then. i married given characters they remember i was a tank company commander in the six day war and i fought on sunrise northern road this time i faced completely different soldiers soldiers who are much more determined soldiers who are certainly different from what i saw in the six day war
in the very same place in the pyramid of a home after you know god no no. no no no no no we. only it will. continue. to give me a lot of. israel's initial counter attack had failed and after losing fifty of his tanks are down or did his forces to fall back to defensive positions. was still in terms of prestige israeli tank crews had been taken prisoner of war including a tank battalion commander left tenant a sufi gouri. for the first time in its twenty five year history israel was on the defensive. sustaining heavy casualties and
unable to achieve the superiority of one nine hundred sixty seven on land or in the air. in the six day war it had dominated the skies. but now the israeli air force found itself facing a wall of surface to add missile batteries employing the latest soviet sam technology. and by no. they built an anti aircraft system which is among the best the most effective in the world. they use their missiles towards the canal and even transferred some of the lighter missiles to the other side and of course it was an effective system that i must admit. to achieve as superiority these release had to try to knock out egypt sound more. but the missile
defenses took a heavy toll of the attacking ak rofft. by day four of the war israel had lost forty eight planes and eight of its entire afros. set off by fire thirty one me side and down sixteen aircraft and that's one point eight me sides with each target that's a record because their issue is supposed to be two or three missiles for each plane . i only ever know i was lying in my open exploded. don't remember me powerful people exploded and i woke up with. an addiction. as the first week of conflict ended israel suffered another serious blow. on the thirteenth of october in front of the world's media the last of israel's bar-lev line of fortresses surrendered to the forty third battalion of egyptian commandos.
said in an assurance i couldn't believe my eyes seeing the israeli soldiers waving the white flag and humiliated still we cheated them very well. for using. last hours for india. even if that the israeli surrender was a moment of humiliation not for me that when your enemy is so humiliated so the extent that it touches you that is something with the lieutenant the commander of the stronghold saluted our commander brought down the israeli flag folded it at that put his gun on it and handed it to him he took it and raised the egyptian flag up high and they saluted it i was tearful and so happy and thinking oh my god
if i were him i would kill myself yet and i love that. the surrender of fortune as a half finally destroyed the myth of the supposedly impregnable bar-lev line. is almost medieval forts which had cost hundreds of millions of dollars to build and proved useless as israel's first line of defense. of a mature market but we did chip sions big advantage over us and let you go on cripple war was that they didn't large themselves regarding how they functioned in the six day war and they fixed what they were capable of fixing up we lie to ourselves about what had happened in the six day war and that we paid the price that shot that's about. as weak one of this october war ended the streets of cairo filled with people reveling in their country's military triumphs. six years of defeat and been reversed
mom. was put in a week to triumph would turn to tears. it was a war that united egypt and syria and against israel but in the heat of the battle that different agendas soon became apparent i suppose the dream was to the venge defeat of my sixty seven when president sadat came to power he told us just give me ten centimeters of land in the east the second of a three part series israeli population but told that their troops were on the west bank of the so is going to explore the second week of the war in october on al-jazeera.

welcomes the program a trade route between the world's two biggest economies china and the u.s. has escalated president donald trump says he will impose twenty five percent tariffs on fifty billion dollars worth of chinese imports saying the u.s. was being taken advantage of what beijing promised to retaliate quickly with its own tower of twenty five percent on u.s. goods also worth fifty billion to start in july ellen fisher has more from the white house. u.s. president donald trump has been hammering china on trade for months and a key or take morning on the white house north lawn where he held a surprise news conference he confirmed he was going to act we need protection everybody take him as the european union made one hundred fifty one billion dollars on a list that the world that told you that challenge you look at japan middle of the south korea look at something that would help these countries militarily and have
a perfect yes but what point this is so now the u.s. will impose tariffs an additional tax on goods imported from china the industries to be impacted agriculture evasion automotive and the tech sector the white house says it's not targeting foreigners t.v.'s and computers for no that would mean higher charges higher costs for consumers. one trade expert says a u.s. trade battle with china the world's two biggest economies will impact global markets it creates instability uncertainty it reduces particularly investment uncertainty for long term investors private business capital expenses and these types of things donald trump summit in singapore may have strengthened his determination to act for years the u.s. look to china to help bring in industry in north korea but convinced he's built up a solid relationship with kim jong un the president perhaps feels he's in a stronger position to act on trade. industries targeted
a loose tie to china is made in china twenty twenty five strategic plan to dominate the emerging high technology industries drive future economic growth but hunt for us and others china has warned when the first set of targets hit on july the sixth it will respond that will spark a second round of titus from the us to move on the alito tree each time it is consistent in its stance that if the us adopts any unilateral protectionist measures and damages china's interests we will immediately react and take necessary measures to firmly safeguard our legitimate rights and interests there are those in this town and those in this white house who privately believe that a long term trade war with china would be bad for the u.s. economy and for u.s. consumers but donald trump is the living on a campaign promise and he believes a trade war would be good for the u.s. and it's a war he can when. alan fischer al jazeera at the white house so let's take a closer look now at the people most likely to feel the pinch of the terrorists
first while china is aiming at six hundred fifty nine u.s. exports but with a focus on grown produce american soybean farmers send sixty percent of their crops to china and are likely to be the first to suffer but chinese pig farmers will also be hurt by the tariff on soybean as they use it for feed there are other sources but it's likely the chinese pork consumers which number the biggest in the world will be affected trumps tariffs target mainly chinese industry so far it seems that will not have much of an effect on the price of consumer goods in the u.s. at least not right away out of there was florence levy joins us live now from the chinese capital beijing front so just talk us through beijing's reaction to these trade tariffs imposed by donald trump. well i think the chinese of fear is they are absolutely furious at what's hit them and they are hitting back they're hitting back hard we heard the chinese commerce ministry issued a statement shortly after trump made his announcement and they said they would
respond with taxation measures of the same measure of the same scale and then they've released a list of products of u.s. products that are going to be affected by these chinese tariffs and this list is an expanded list from initial initial one hundred and six products in april to now on six hundred fifty nine types of goods and this first list this first tranche of tires they will come into effect just like the u.s. tariffs on the sixth of july and this will hit u.s. farmers because these tariffs will hit farm products including soybean pork chicken seafood as well as automobile manufacturers and then there's a second tranche that's going to be on sixteen billion dollars worth of u.s. goods and just like the u.s. tariffs they will come into effect on a date to be announced later but the products the list of goods affected include medical devices energy crude oil and chemicals and florence what's lying to them to be the wider political fallout from this because washington needs beijing's help on
wider broader geopolitical issues like north korea. well i suppose president trump is probably hoping that his personal relationship with chinese president xi jinping is going to be able to cushion some of this fallout but that could be a false assumption you know that could be an incorrect assessment especially when the tyrants when they begin to bite when they begin to hit chinese consumers that personal relationship is not going to save the relationship between china and us and also you know this could escalate i mean make no mistake this is already a trade war but it could escalate even further especially when trump has said he's going to retaliate. if china hits back with tariffs and china has said it's taken note of that statement and it reserves the right to take corresponding measures so we really could see this escalating further and this comes like you said at a time when the u.s. does need china especially when it comes to enforcing tougher u.n.
