Israel took the Sinai Peninsula and Gaza from Egypt, the Golan Heights from Syria, and the West Bank from Jordan. (Gaza and the West Bank were being administered by those respective countries.) Israel returned the Sinai and has withdrawn from Gaza, but still retains/occupies the Golan Heights and much of the West Bank.
