The Israeli troops manning the Bar Lev Line. . .were unaware that war was about to descend heavily upon them. . . On the west bank the usual off-duty activities went on - Egyptian soldiers fishing, swimming and lounging near the water's edge. . . No suspicion was roused until about 1345 hours, when suddenly, on the Egyptian side, all went quiet. Off-duty soldiers disappeared, and the more observant Israeli sentries in their watchtowers noted that muzzle covers were being removed from funs and mortars of the west bank. . . At S Hour, 1405 hours, about two thousand weapons opened up with a tremendous barrage.
The Yom Kippur War had begun.
