The combat here starts on 21 July 1977 and ends witha ceasefire on 24 July 1977.
After the Yom Kippur War Egypt was going to make peace with the Isrealis which caused tension with Libya. THey started to build up on the Egyptian border and were said to have plans to invade Libya with US backing.
There were a number of events that made things more difficult including the hijacking of an Eygptian airplane and also Libyas expulsion of 225,000 Egyptian nationals from Libya.
After thousands of Libyans who where marching in protest to Cairo were stopped at the Egyptian border on 20 July 1977 the Libyans carried out a raid on Sallum which I have noted on the map as El Salloum. The Egyptians responded by sending 3 divisions and counter attacked and took several Libyan towns.
However, they were talked out ofa full scaleinvasion by other Arab states and a ceasefire was signed.
I think we can have 3 turns per day in this game meaning that the Egyptians enter on turn the second day.
