Al-Sisi commemorates National Police Day

Celebration attended by high officials from Interior Ministry

Egypt’s President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi attended on Wednesday a ceremony at the Police Academy held by the Interior Ministry to commemorate National Police Day.

A number of senior officials and public figures, including Interior Minister Mahmoud Tawfik, attended the ceremony.

The 25 January marks the National Police Day which was named after Egyptian police won a battle in 1952 against British occupation forces in Ismailia city on the west bank of the Suez Canal.

The holiday commemorates and is a remembrance for hundreds of police personnel who died during the battle, and more wounded, when they refused British demands to hand over weapons and evacuate the Ismailia Police Station on 25 January 1952.
