Follow the Six Day War on Twitter

Monday, May 15, 2017 |  Israel Today Staff

Israel's Ministry of Foreign Affairs has launched a very special project to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Six Day of War.

Starting today, the 15th of May, the day on which Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser expelled UN peacekeepers from the Sinai Peninsula and closed the Straits of Tiran, you can follow all the drama and action on Twitter.

As part of the project, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has created a number of Twitter accounts representing real people, like then-Prime Minister Levy Eshkol, and fictitious characters to represent the men and women who fought in and experienced the war.

Then-Defense Minister Moshe Dayan, too, has received a Twitter handle:

The main Twitter account for this project can be found at @Tweeting67, where the Ministry of Foreign Affairs will recount the events of 1967 as if they were happening live.

Ministry officials hope to use the project to bring the dramatic Six Day War to life for the younger generations, using a medium and a language they better understand today.
