Sinai has great strategic importance (especially North Sinai), as it represents the eastern fortress of Egypt, which is the passage from which most of the invasions that targeted Egypt, whether in ancient or modern history, crossed.

In the year 1948 AD, the outskirts of the city of Al-Arish witnessed the shattering of the dream of Israel to occupy the Sinai, where a brave Egyptian soldier confronted the enemy tanks attacking the city of Al-Arish, near the village of Lahfin, south of Al-Arish.

In the modern era, the spark of the July 23 revolution was the first to start from Al-Arish, since the two battalions that surrounded the King's Palace in Abdin and the important areas in Cairo were from the forces of Major General Muhammad Najib, the commander of the Arish region and the first president of Egypt.

In 1956 CE, Sinai witnessed the failure of the tripartite aggression adventure against Egypt, as England, France, and Israel agreed to attack Egypt, where England and France occupy the Suez Canal Zone and Israel occupies Sinai under this agreement.

As for the year 1967 AD, the war between Israel and the Arabs aided and supported America, and Israel's occupation of Sinai, the West Bank, and the Golan Heights.

On the other hand, Sinai was the battle of the Sixth of October (10 Ramadan) in 1973 AD, when the Egyptian armed forces crossed the Suez Canal and the Bar-Lev Line and raised the flags of victory.
