It is the celebration of the Egyptian army's crossing into Sinai in 1973. Armed Forces Day is celebrated with a military parade and air display. Celebrations on Armed Forces Day typically include parades and other events staged by the military, as well as patriotic television shows, songs, and fireworks displays.
