After the Sinai-Suez war of 1956, British and French forces withdrew and there was established the first UN peace-keeping force, the United Nations Emergency Force (UNEF), interposed between the belligerent armies. The final phase of Israel’s withdrawal was delayed until the Israeli government was satisfied that Palestinian guerrilla raids from the Gaza Strip would cease and explicit assurances had been received about access through the Strait of Tiran and to the port of Eilat in the Gulf of Aqaba. Israel was never willing that UNEF should be deployed on the Israeli side of the frontier, as was initially envisaged at the United Nations.
