This chapter examines the history of the Tripartite Aggression. It suggests that this conflict was triggered by Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser's decision to nationalize the Suez Canal. The chapter discusses the violation of the 1949 armistice lines between Israel and the Arab states, and Israel's attacks across the armistice lines that included the assault on the Buraij refugee camp in Gaza in August 1953. It also provides an estimate of the human cost of this conflict.

Keywords:   Tripartite Aggression, Gamal Abdel Nasser, Suez Canal, armistice lines, Israel, Arab states, Buraij refugee camp, Gaza, human cost
