On October 6, 1973, the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur, Egyptian and Syrian forces launched a coordinated attack on Israeli territory, hoping to recapture the Sinai Peninsula and the Golan Heights. This is yet another bitter conflict between Arabs and Israelis, less than ten years after the Six-Day War. This conflict is already causing regional and international instability, and it is up to the UN Security Council to find a solution to deescalate the violence, as well as try to find long term solutions to prevent further violence.
