Drive around the block

Charles Sawyer

pp. 547-561

The IDF (Israeli Defense Force) had a plan to thwart an Egyptian crossing, a system that would flood the waters of the canal with a flammable fluid, like gasoline, ignite it and turn the Canal into a flaming moat. But when the Egyptians began their incursion, the Israeli defense malfunctioned and the crossing succeeded. Official Egyptian press reports said that Egyptian commandos had sabotaged the fluid delivery system the night before the attack.
