On Wednesday Mr. Abdel Samad Bally ,the last surviving 1956 Suez War POW has passed away in his village â€œAl Dibiaâ€ at Kafr Sheikh. He was 72 years old.
Mr. Bally had been suing the Israeli government since 2001 and the court ordered a compensation but unfortunately for unknown reason the Egyptian government appealed !!!
His son Mr. Khaled Bally is going to continue in the lawsuit,it was his father well.
The Israeli government was embarrassed from that particular case because it was thought that there were no living 1956 Egyptian POWs.
I feel sad for Mr. Bally, May God bless his soul, he died without receiving his right or even a recognition from his country !! I wish I know more about his story in captivity. I will try to find more information about him insh Allah .
RIP Mr. Bally
