44 killed in Cairo during army celebrations to mark the anniversary of the 1973 Arab-Israeli war.
At least 44 people have been killed in Egypt in clashes between security forces and supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi.
The figure, from a health ministry official, comes as Morsi supporters protested in several cities during army celebrations to mark the anniversary of the 1973 Arab-Israeli war.
Eighty people are also reported to have been wounded.
Journalist Bel Trew, in Cairo, told Sky News the military had been expecting the unrest and described seeing “chaotic side street clashes with lots of gunfire and tear gas”.
Cairo’s streets were largely deserted on Sunday, a public holiday to commemorate the October War, known as the Yom Kippur War in Israel.
The conflict is remembered proudly by the Egyptian army because it caught Israel by surprise and led to the recovery of the Sinai Peninsula in a 1979 peace treaty.
You must be a complete airhead to write this kind of historical non sense, as presented in this BBC-report.
Egypt attacked Israel in 1973, in the most cowardly way possible. Egypt tried to destroy Israel on the most holiest day of Judaism. But God of Israel did not sleep. The Arabs lost the war.
To celebrate the “victory” of the Yom Kippur war, is nothing but a bid to twist twist historical facts, and force a whole nation to live on illusions and lies.
The You Kippur war was a complete disaster for Egypt. Not only did they loose the Sinai to Israeli forces. The Israeli army crossed the Suez channel, and was on its way towards Cairo when Washington D.C intervened and stopped the Israeli military advance.
Most Arabs live in a terrible state of self denial. The obvious military defeat is presented to the blind and disconnected Muslims, as an heroic military victory.
Doing this kind of reporting, the BBC display that the media major have no knowledge about the topic, no discernment and no intention of distributing the truth.
Such in the nature of evil.
The free Europe is dying, and it is dying fast. Europeans do live in submission to modern Arab and Islamic fortune telling. As long as Israel is defamed, anything seems to be permissible.
May Jesus the Messiah have mercy on all deceived souls.
