What had been the situation on
the Egyptian front on 28th of October the last day
of the war?
The Egyptian military
leadership issued a military statement briefing the
military situation on 24 October, morning Saying:
(Our forces in Sinai returned
the eastern bank of the Suez canal along the way
from Por-Fouad at the north with a length of 200
Km, and depth from 12 to 17 km along the front
including Al-Kantara–East city, except a small gap
from El Deversoir at the north along seven Km,
adjoining Al Morra (bitter) lakes. The surface at
the east of the Canal (Sinai) under our forces
control is 3000 square Kilometers.
There is absolutely no enemy
forces in any of the main cities of the canal: Suez,
Ismailia and Por–Said.
There are some enemy units
scattered and interlacing between our forces at
certain parts at the west of the canal. The enemy
tried this morning, 24 October to cut the roads
leading to Suez city but our forces are preventing
it to do so.
Provisions to all our forces
at the east of the canal are continuous regularly
and have not stopped at all)-the statement is stated
in the memorials of the chief of operations staff of
the war of October 1973- General Mohamed El Gamsy.
Thus, the situation continued
till the end of the war, as the Israeli forces
failed to enter Suez city, and 25 October became a
national feast for this city after this. But the
enemy cut the road (Cairo–Suez), at this time the
war stopped with the arrival of the international
emergency forces on 28 of October 1973.
