Kadesh “1956” part 1

Kadesh ,when I read this word I always remember Ramses II and his propaganda , I remember immediately the Kadesh battle

Kadesh by the way is the name of the Syrian city where the Egyptian Army had a great battle and made the first Peace agreement between them and their enemy then the Hittites

Kadesh also is a name of a city in Israel ,it means also holy in Hebrew “interesting”

And it was also the code name of the operation or the Israeli invasion that happened in 1956 to Sinai in Egypt and to Gaza in Palestine , it was called “Operation Kadesh”

I don’t know if the IDF called it “Kadesh” as reference to the battle or the Hebrew meaning “holy”, I believe that it can be referred to the holiness of the operation ,you see Israel was putting hope that it could take Sinai “which has a biblical importance the Jewish faith” to form or complete the Grand Israel project from the Nile to Euphrates so it was like a holy operation for the Israeli side

On the 29th of October in 1956 after only 5 days of agreement in France ,the IDF began the invasion , they invaded Gaza Strip and moved rapidly to Suez Canal Eastern Shore ,invading the Sinai ,already you will be amazed to know that Moshe Dayan and Shimon Perez came up with the plan on the same day of the 24th of October where the three countries signed the Protocol of Sèvres, I guess before signing the Protocol Ben Gurion, the prime minister of Israel and also Minister of defense then asked both Moshe Dayan “Chief of Staff of the IDF” and Shimon Peres “the director general of the IDF {the youngest ever till now }” to the last minute about the readiness of the IDF and the plan to avoid any mess calculation because that adventure they would start would lead them to their biggest achievement ever that including Sinai in to Israel “I guess you already know that ”

The plan ironically was drawn on a Kent cigarettes box ,it was Peres’ and the pen was Dayan’s and Dayan drew it on the the Kent because they couldn’t find a map for Sinai in the villa ,imagine a 3 days meeting discussing the invasion of A copy from the Orignail sketch another country and they don’t have maps for it !!!

The Kent cigarettes box is already in the archives of the IDF and a copy of it had released last month and it is available in their online archive site unfortunately it is totally in Hebrew 😦

Operation Kadesh by the way is similar somehow to what happened in 1967 from an Israeli attack

It started with an Air force attack , the IAF launched its attacks , already since 1953 the Israeli government began to build the IAF buying jets ,training air fighters ,by the way Egypt was the first country in the middle east to have Air forces even before the revolution and this Air force ,was the only one which reached really to the Israeli depth and targeted Tel Aviv in 1948 yet historians tend to forget because it happened during the monarchy !! Anyway back to the IAF

Operation Tarnegol

The attack began on the 28th of October 1956 exactly at 20:00 on the eve of starting “Kadesh” an air fighter from the type of  Meteor NF.13 No.25 was taken off to intercept the Egyptian Air force craft “Ilyushin Il-14” and which was though to have the Egyptian minister of defense then “Abel Hakim Amar” on board coming from Syria , unfortunately he wasn’t on board despite that the IAF succeeded in downing the Egyptian Air craft !! What can I say , that ass hole Amar “Amar” had more time on Earth to live !! man I believe if he were on that aircraft , we wouldn’t have tough defeat in 1967 😦 Amar didn’t die because he decided to prolong in Syria .

Of course that attack would have a great impact on Egypt , it is a direct declaration of war when you target your enemy country’s defense minister aircraft

But this didn’t happen and the strange ,it was never announced in Egypt ,my mother doesn’t recall it at all , this may go to the fact that in less than few hours after that attack , “Kadesh” started , so possibly it was among the other news and Egyptians didn’t give it much attention perfectly among all the news of invasion and war

even on the other side it was kept as a secret for 33 years ,the Israeli civilians didn’t know anything about Operation Tarenegol “Roast” , well the Israeli officials of course then were very sad that there plan didn’t go as they wanted , but if they knew what was hidden in the future and how Amar accidentally will serve their dreams of having Sinai and conquering the Egyptian army in 1967 ,they wouldn’t dare even to think in a second in bombing Amar !!!

Operation Kadesh

Operation Kadesh initially was similar to 1967 on having the first strike from the IAF , it was planned to launch attack by air fighters from the Meteor type to target the EAF airports in the west of Cairo “I guess Almaza and also Imbaba in Giza as it is in the west of Cairo” yet it was abondened in the last time in the eve of Kadesh where the IAF was ordered to cover up and assist the ground forces in Sinai , already this is an old Israeli technique before a ground invasion ,the IAF comes in and bomb earth ,so the IDF won’t find much resistance just like what happened in South Lebanon, anyway the IAF took their orders on the 28th of October and next day officially the war started on the 29th of October 1956

Look I will stop here , so I won’t be so talkative ,please I am very sick , I will complete tomorrow insh Allah

I have a little request ,please comment on these posts because I feel I am talking in a deserted area
