Egyptian gunmen allegedly opened fire on a tour bus containing a group of Israeli tourists at the Pompey Pillar Site in Alexandria. As a result, the two Israeli tourists died.
The Russian news agency RT reported that not only the two tourists, an Egyptian citizen also lost his life in the attack.
Quoting AFP, the shooting was carried out by Egyptian Police who were carried out “randomly” using their “personal weapons” towards an Israeli tour group visiting Alexandria.
According to the Associated Press (AP) report, the area of the Pompey’s Pillar Site in Alexandria has been closed by security forces and the suspected attacker has been detained.
As is known, a video that went viral on social media showed at least three ambulances taking the victims to hospital, while the public watched the incident from behind police barricades.
