Israeli airplanes attacked the USS Liberty in the Mediterranean
during the 6-Day War between Israel and its Arab neighbors on
this day in 1967.

Thirty four U.S. Navy crewmen were killed. Israel apologized for
the attack, saying that the USS Liberty had been attacked in error
after being mistaken for an Egyptian ship. 

Both the Israeli and U.S. governments conducted inquiries and
issued
 reports that concluded the attack was a mistake due to
Israeli confusion
 about the ship’s identity.
