French and British forces clash in the Battle of Alexandria in Egypt. After their campaign in the Levant, French forces returned to Egypt to resupply their army. The British deployed an expeditionary corps to Upper Egypt and began to move on Alexandria. In response, the French tried to halt the British advance, engaging in two minor battles, Abukir and Mandora. On 20 March, the British had set up positions along Lake Abukir and the Alexandria Canal. Early the next morning the French began their attack. The two sides clashed throughout the morning, with the British commander Ralph Abercrombie being mortally wounded after French dragoons broke through British lines. By 8:30 a.m. the fight began to wane, and the French were driven from the field. With the French retreating from the field, the British were able to continue their march on Alexandria. Supplied with fresh reinforcements, the British would besiege the French garrison of Fort Julien in April, and would eventually march on Alexandria later that summer leading to the French abandoning their Egyptian campaign.

Israel launches Operation Litani against Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) positions in Southern Lebanon. In 1968, the PLO established a base of operations in Southern Lebanon to raid Israeli towns in Northern Israel. The PLO further bolstered their ranks in Southern Lebanon following the ousting of the PLO from Jordan in 1971. In early March 1971, an Israeli bus was destroyed in a terrorist attack, killing 35 civilians. In response to the attack, Israel launched Operation Litani into Southern Lebanon. The Israelis were able to push 10 kilometers into Lebanese territory with two divisions, and paratroopers seized all the bridges along the Litani River in an attempt to cut off the retreat of PLO militants. The operation lasted seven days and led to the deployment of UN Peacekeepers (UNFIL), who have maintained a presence in the area since. See MoreSee Less
