Do you remember the mass grave for Muslims in Eilat last month ?? AlreadyÂ the Defense and National security committee in the Egyptian assembly should have discussed it yesterday ,unfortunately there were no news regarding this discussion as yesterday the El-Malt’s CAO report was the main topic in the media for the last two days and seriously I have to say it was much important and it is expected to take all the attention whether from the media or the members of Parliament.
On the other hand there is a great historical debate about the mass grave and its location , also it is expected thing , Um Rashrash is already a center of debate of whether it is an Egyptian land or not .
The historical debate started when 1948 veteran , free officers movement member and military historian General Gamal Hamad said to Masrawy website that those remains are not for Egyptian officers and soldiers and there was no Egyptian Battalion in the Um Rashrash village in year 1949 and that they were for Jordanian battalion
We did not fight the Israelis in any battle in the Um Rashrash region. These remains could be for Jordanian officers and soldiers as this region was following the Jordan
Of course the old veteran and famous military historian had contradicts totally with what the Front for restoring Um Rashrash is saying , especially the front includes many historians and many military personalities like General Saad El-Din Shazaaly.
Still it is very easy to know to which army those people used to belong to , through photos of their military uniforms or the remains of their uniforms to be accurate , also through the photos and the Holy Quran found in the site, we can know in which country it was printed and thus it will be an evidence for us.
Strangely there is no one from Jordan claimed that these were remains for Jordanian Battalion till now.
Anyhow whether they are Jordanians or Egyptians ,the war crime is still there ,Â the evidence is still there.

@M Ali thanks dear , do not be surprised or disappointed for long because I believe in the end we will take back the right of those great men
Good Day …. The Jordanian media and public were moved by the story of the remains of the Jordanian soldier which was found near Jerusalem and is returned now to his home town in Jordan.
I remebered your important article “Were they egyptians or Jordanians?” I am going to use your facts as a base for an article which I hope will be accepted for publishing in one of the leading Jordanian Newspapers.
As you said, it does not matter to me whether they are Egyptian or Jordanian soldiers. They are Arab soldiers.
Thank you for your inspiring articles.
