Sam Kulik via chabadoldmontreal.com September 13, 2013

sam kulik General Dayan was right. The USSR would never have stood idly by and allowed a capital to fall. Also capturing a city is never easy. Ten days later Israel tried to take Suez City, Egypt's third largest city and in the ensuing battle lost over 300 men and they had to retreat

In 1982 Israel captured Beirut, but soon after had to retreat again for the same reason.

As I stated above General Dayan was absolutely right in not capturing the city. What Israel did do was move into a forward position where it would be easy to shell the city at any time. Reply
