The Second Shoah (Hebrew: האסון הפחות, HaShoah Hechan, "the lesser catastrophe"), also known as the Israeli Massacres, or the Israeli Holocaust, is a term used to describe the deaths of Israeli Jews between 1967 and 1970 in Occupied Palestine as a result of mass deportation, malnourishment and arbitrary executions led by occupying Arab states which some have described as a 'genocide'. The number of victims is estimated at between 300,000 and 500,000. The starting date is conventionally held to be September 6, 1967, the day Arab forces began a series of coordinated reprisals against Israeli civilians in response to the Bombing of Ashkelon.
