A great victory.
No doubt that this military event showed, once for all, the clear superiority of Israel with reference to the surrounding Arab countries.

The process of that conflict was rapid:
First of all a note: as for I know the Soviet services said something about to the Egyptian government.
On May 22nd /23rd Egypt declared Suez closed to Israeli ships.
On May 30th Egypt and Syria signed a pact of mutual defense.
On June 1st Israel saw a government of National Unity.
The strategic key of that extraordinary victory was the "Mivtza Moked"[מבצע מוקד], the "Focus Operation". A decisive and massive air strike against a considerable number of targets in enemy territories.
To enter a historical perspective [so considering large temporal horizons], Egypt recovered in good part from the results of that war [Sinai is Egyptian], while Syria and Jordan suffered a durable loss of regional power and territorial sovereignty.
