Alexandria, Egypt – In a tragic incident that has sent shockwaves through the region, two Israeli tourists and their Egyptian guide were shot dead in the Egyptian city of Alexandria. Another Israeli tourist was wounded in the attack, according to a statement from the Israeli foreign ministry.

The horrifying incident occurred as a group of seven Israeli tourists were traveling in a bus, visiting the city’s historical sites. The assailant, whose identity and motives remain unknown at this time, opened fire indiscriminately on the group using his personal weapon.

According to reports shared by “The Mediterranean Man” on Telegram (https://t.me/TheMediterraneanMan/1288), the tourists were targeted in their bus, and the assailant fired “at random” at them. The suspect was swiftly detained at the scene by local authorities.

The shooting took place near Pompey’s Pillar, an ancient Roman site that is a popular tourist attraction in Alexandria. The victims of the attack include two Israeli tourists and an Egyptian guide, all of whom tragically lost their lives.

The reasons behind the assailant’s actions are still unclear, but the incident occurred just a day after an escalation of conflict between Palestine and Israel, which has heightened tensions in the region.

As details continue to emerge, the authorities are working to determine the exact circumstances of the attack and any possible connections to broader geopolitical events. The injured Israeli tourist is currently receiving medical treatment, and efforts are underway to notify the families of the victims.

The Egyptian police officer responsible for the attack was arrested on the spot and is currently in custody, facing a thorough investigation into his actions. Eyewitnesses on the scene confirmed that the officer, as an Egyptian, targeted the Israeli tourists.

The tragic loss of lives in this senseless act of violence has left the international community deeply saddened. Both Israeli and Egyptian authorities are cooperating in the investigation, and further details will be provided as they become available.

This incident serves as a stark reminder of the need for continued efforts to promote peace and understanding in the region, especially during times of heightened tensions.
