As the Sinai Campaign was coming to a close, the Israeli 7th Armored Brigade rushed toward Ismalia in hope of engaging the Egyptian 1st Armored Brigade. However, the Egyptians had moved out, back towards the Suez Canal. The Israelis pursued and caught up with the Egyptian rear guard near Katib El-Subha. The 7th’s Recon Company of jeeps was able to get close to the Egyptian tanks unmolested. Just as the bazooka teams dismounted and took the tanks in their sights, the Egyptians turned to fire on them. It was at that time Israeli Shermans arrived on the scene as well.
