This thread is dedicated to the Fallen Hero, Khaled El Maghraby, may he RIP who was martyred on 7/7/2017 in the famous terrorist attack in #Sinai #Egypt called AlBarth detachment incident. It's a translation of a thread by @Zala6Egy & @Tahoun71 helped me with the military terms/1
Khaled El Maghraby, nicknamed "Tank" or "Dababa" in Arabic was a member of the 83rd battalion responsible for securing & support of posts & in particular 103rd Battalion. The 103rd battalion was responsible for securing the AlBarth troop gathering detachment./2
Khaled or Tank/ Dababa was on leave & was notified that he will be moved to Alexandria to serve there. He went back to his battalion to say goodbye to his friends & collect his belongings in #Sinai before the move to Alexandria.

Khaled's friends respected him & asked him to stay with them a few days before he leaves #Sinai.
He agreed.
On the day he was supposed to leave, he heard on the radio that AlBarth post has been attacked by terrorists using heavy artillery. The 103rd battalion was attacked/4
He asked his officer if he can assist his friends & the officer told him that he's officially on leave and he should just go to Alexandria. Khaled said he can't do that when the 103rd battalion is under attack. At that instance an SOS came from the leader of 103rd battalion/5
Khaled, Tank/Dababa moved in 4 armoured vehicles with his colleagues to support the troops fighting in AlBarth.
At that time, the terrorists had already prepared a suicide bomber in a car loaded with explosives on the way that Khaled and his colleagues were taking./6
The hero Khaled Dababa passed away! He always knew that he would be killed/martyred. The terrorists in #Sinai had put a price of 1 Million dollars on his head. He had the reputation of taking down more than 430 terrorists due to his fearlessness./ 7 #Egypt
Khaled was personally contacted a couple of times during his life by the Minister of Defence to thank him for his achievements in clearing #Sinai from terrorists.
Khaled used to say "the terrorists that are not caught by artillery will be terminated by planes or by him"/End
