An Egyptian policeman has opened fire on tourists in the Mediterranean city of Alexandria, killing at least two Israeli nationals and one Egyptian, according to local media reports.
The suspected assailant was detained and the site of the attack was cordoned off, according to international media reports.
A video circulating on social media showed at least three ambulances apparently taking the victims to hospitals.
As per reports, the Israeli Foreign Ministry identified the wounded as an Israeli who suffered moderate injuries. The ministry said in a statement that Israeli authorities were working with the Egyptian government to bring the Israelis home.
Sunday’s attack came as Israel carried out bombing of Gaza Strip as it battled Hamas fighters, who killed up to 250 Israelis after crossing into Israeli territory.
At least 313 Palestinians have been killed in barrage of Israeli bombardment on Gaza Strip, which has been under an Israeli siege for the past 16 years.
