Egyptian Policeman Fatally Shoots Two Israeli Tourists in Alexandria

An Egyptian policeman fatally shot two Israeli tourists at the Pompey’s Pillar, a Roman triumphal column in Alexandria, according to the country’s Interior Ministry. The shooting occurred earlier on Sunday, as confirmed by the Associated Press. The Extra News channel, which has ties to Egyptian security agencies, reported that another person was wounded in the attack and that the suspect has been apprehended. The area of the attack was immediately cordoned off by officers, who have launched an investigation into the incident.

The circumstances surrounding the shooting are not yet clear. The incident comes after Hamas launched a surprise attack on targets in southwest Israel on October 7, resulting in the deaths of at least 26 Israeli soldiers and over 250 recorded fatalities. In response, the Israel Defense Forces stated that they were striking Hamas targets in Gaza.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu condemned the attack, describing Hamas as an enemy that murders innocent citizens, including children and the elderly. He vowed to use all necessary force to destroy Hamas’s capabilities and avenge the attack.

The shooting in Alexandria is considered a crime and is currently under investigation by Egyptian authorities.
