In four days, the Israeli army swept through Sinai. He acknowledged Israel’s pre-emptive strike. Nasser blamed the US and Britain for aiding Israel’s success, yet took responsibility for the Arab defeat and resigned. Immediately, millions of Egyptians poured into the streets angry that he led the country to defeat, but loving him as a father, demanding that he stay as President. All the Egyptian military command resigned, but Nasser stayed in office till his death in September 1970. (source)
