The Suez Canal crisis was a conflict between Great Britain, France, Israel and Egypt, which took place from October 29 to November 6, 1956. The immediate cause of this crisis was the nationalization of the Universal Canal Company Maritime of Suez (Anglo-French since 1875) carried out by Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser on July 26, 1956. British Prime Minister Anthony Eden considered that the action undertaken by Nasser endangered the oil supply from the gulf Persian and trade with the Far East through the Suez Canal, in addition to representing a challenge to British dominance in the Middle East.
