File - Amir Karara and Asser Yassin.
CAIRO – 27 April 2020: The third episode of the National epic "El-Ekhteyar" (The Choice) series was titled "The right of the martyr".
This episode tackled the Egyptian army's immortal principal that they must take every martyr's revenge from those who killed him.
The episode's martyr was army officer Aly (played by Asser Yassin), who partnered with Ahmed el-Mansy (Amir Karara) to avenge their colleagues, who were killed in a terrorist attack and arrest the terrorists hiding in a farm in Sinai.
Aly sacrificed his life and became a martyr in the endless chain of successful military operations performed by our great Egyptian Army.
The conversation that took place between Mansy and the terrorists’ leader revealed the difference between the logic of champions and the traitors:
Terrorists’ leader: If you come a bit closer I will detonate the explosive belt; both of us will die and you will go to hell.
Mansy: Use it then. I am sure I will go to heaven. You always say to your followers whom you deceive that you will go to heaven. Use it and let us see who will be in heaven.
Terrorists’ leader: why die together if we can live together?
Mansy: Come with me; we want you alive and if you killed tens of us, others will come to arrest you.
This is the main principal of the Egyptian soldiers; if some die, others complete the mission and others join anew.
Each episode of "El-Ekhteyar" presents a lesson and a precious principal that show the greatness of the Egyptian army.
"El-Ekhteyar" managed to grab the audiences' attention since the first episode.
The national epic series tells the story of the Egyptian army Legend, Ahmed el-Mansy, that we all love, admire and respect but know nothing about his family, friends, personality or morals.
Mansy was the commander of the Thunderbolt Forces who was killed during the clashes between Egyptian army forces and militants as the army besieged groups of terrorists and foiled attacks that targeted a number of other checkpoints in the Rafah area in North Sinai in 2017.
"El-ekhteyar" introduces us to the human being deep inside this exceptional hero and why he was a Legend.
As the first episode of "El-ekhteyar" was very strong, the second and the third continued in the same path, tackling more the human side of Mansy.
"El-ekhteyar" series is written by Baher Dewidar, directed by Peter Mimi and produced by Synergy. Amir Karara, Dina Fouad, Hanan Youssef, Dina Adel, Ahmed Fouad Selim co-star in addition to notable guests of honor such as Eyad Nassar, Mohamed Emam, Salah Abdallah , Mohamed Ragab, Karim Mahmoud Abdel Aziz, Asser Yassin, Amr Gamal, Maged el Masry among others.
Producing this series, Synergy started a new era in the Arab drama production that will compete with the European and American productions.
