Israel’s Foreign Ministry confirmed that two Israeli tourists were killed in a shooting attack in Egypt on Sunday.
Two Israeli citizens and their local Egyptian guide were killed when they were on a group tour in Egypt’s northern province of Alexandria when local security personnel opened fire on them, the ministry said in a statement. Another Israeli sustained moderate injuries.
The ministry and the Israeli Embassy in Cairo are working to return the deceased and the rest of the group to Israel “as soon as possible,” the statement read.
