Gamal Abdel Nasser, President of the United Arab Republic (Egypt) announces that Arab forces will liberate all areas occupied by Israel.

During a six-day conflict the previous year, which came to be known as the Six-Day War, Israel captured the Sinai Peninsula, the Gaza Strip, and the West Bank of the Jordan River.

President Nasser's statement is made in reaction to the recent decision by Israel to stop referring to captured land as "enemy territory," thus implying that Israel would incorporate the land into their own nation. Nasser says:

"This decision is a new incentive, a new warning. From this spot I swear we shall liberate this land inch by inch, no matter what the cost and the sacrifices."
