The UNEF was the UN's first peacekeeping operation with participation of troops from Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Denmark, Finland, Indonesia, Norway, Sweden and Yugoslavia; and their role was to maintain peace between Egypt and Israel in the wake of the Suez Crisis of 1956, when Israeli, British and French forces marched into Egypt.
