After the disaster on 5th June 1967 at which UAR air force lost about 85% of fighters and fighter-bombers strength On the morning of 6 June 1967 at 7:00 A.M., Fayid AB, two Su-7s took off piloted by Major Midhat al-Malayji and A wingman to attack al-Khalsa airfield [Haluza in Israel]. They found no aircraft there, and so they kept flying very low and penetrated further inside Israel. They crossed over Beersheba railroad and attacked an airfield there [Nevatim] destroying some helicopters. On the return journey, however, both had to gain altitude to conserve fuel, and thus they were attacked by Israeli Mirage III's some 30 km from al-Faid AB. wingman Su-7 was hit. Midhat ordered him to eject at once but got a reply that the Su-7 was still flyable and under control and that, he would land at al-Faid. Midlhat headed for Abu Sawair AB to give his wingman priority to land first at al-Faid AB. wingman managed to land his damaged plane on the subsidiary runway at al-Faid AB where his airplane was repaired and was used on operations again after four days.
Midhat al-Malayji try to reach Abu-swair AB, but due to fuel shortage and also to save his Su-7, he try to land on Esmailia-Cairo road but unfortunately Midhat al-Malayji lost control for his Su-7 - which turn over - loosing his life while trying to save his Su-7 at this critical time.
