Egypt’s President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi commemorated on Friday the army’s 1973 victory against Israel on 10 Ramadan, adding that the current ongoing “efforts by the military in their fight against terrorism and the building of the modern Egyptian state” are as important as the 10 Ramadan victory.

El-Sisi, following Friday prayers in New Cairo’s El-Mosheer Tantawi Mosque, met with a number of senior army officials, saying that 10 Ramadan was the country’s “biggest military victory in modern history,” and that it would “remain a great day in our military and national history,” state news agency MENA reported.

The president also praised the army’s contribution in big developmental projects, along with the country’s ministries, to provide a good life for the Egyptian citizen.
