The Suez crisis (1956) Gamal Abdel Nasser's Egypt purchased a handful of MiG-15 and MiG-17 fighters in 1955 from Czechoslovakia with USSR sponsorship, which were deployed to the 1st Squadron in time to take part in the Anglo-French attack. Israeli known as the Suez Crisis. During air combat against the Heyl Ha'Avir (Israeli Air Force), despite suffering several losses, the Egyptian MiG-15bis were able to shoot down at least three Israeli aircraft: a Piper Cub and a Meteor F.8 of the 117th Squadron . on October 30, 1956 (the latter due to a bad maneuver), and a Dassault Ouragan that had to make a "belly" landing on November 1 - this last victory was achieved by pilot Faruq el-Gazzavi. Egypt enjoyed superiority in the number of jet aircraft, although the MiG-15 did not come close to matching the Israeli fighter plane, the French Mystere, of which Israel only had one squadron. However, thanks to the better quality of its pilots, Israeli aviation soon showed superiority on the battlefield, long before the Anglo-French air forces attacked Egyptian airfields. On the morning of October 30, 4 MiG-15s attacked Israeli paratroopers at the Mitla Pass. They requested support from the IAF headquarters, the number of attackers had increased to 24 and the entire 101st Squadron was called into combat. After 20 minutes after the alarm was given, 8 Mystères arrived at the Mitla pass to meet a dozen Mig-15s. One Mig was shot down, while another was damaged but managed to return to its base.

On October 31, activity intensified throughout Sinai. Throughout the day the Mystères were flown as superior escort for Israeli ground and air forces. Several dogfights took place throughout the day: at 09:00 a pair of Mysteres encountered 7 MiG-15s, but they did not engage in combat.

The same couple encounters another Mig upon their return to base and forces it to crash on the ground. The plane was later recovered by Israel. Another Mig was shot down later the same day while two more broke down, without being shot down.

The Six Day War (1967) edit Egypt and Syria were equipped with MiG-15 "Fagot-A" and MiG-15bis "Fagot-B" since the 1950s, and these aircraft still fought in 1967.

Much of The MiG-15s were destroyed at their bases on the morning of June 5, 1967, during the Israeli preemptive strike that began the Six-Day War.

A few Egyptian Air Force MiG-15s survived the attack to conduct ground attack sorties against the Israeli Army, but those missions were considered suicidal, as at that time the MiG-15 was hopelessly obsolete for air combat and was not was a rival for the Israelis.
