    Terrorism is terrible. He has no nationality or geography. You just need to destroy it. On the vine. Recovery to the victim.

      I agree with you. compassionate to native tourists.
      I want to note that in the light of the unfolding events in the Mediterranean, the Persian Gulf, Egypt seems to me hinting at least to enter the anti-Iranian coalition, to think about the Arab character of NATO as much as possible. the Egyptians keep cold from all this.

        99,9% - again Iran will be accused. In recent days he has been overshadowing Russia with his "malice".

          I don’t understand what the terrorists want to achieve. I'm not talking about these specifically, but about everyone. After all, it has long been clear that these methods do not justify themselves. Subsequently, only tightens control. Improving methods of struggle.
          If purely intimidated, it only acts for a while. People even get used to the bombing.

          Stupid, uneducated terrorists. In hyperspace today it is possible to do much harm to one regime or another than the notorious explosions.

          Terrorists are stupid, degrading rabble, completely incapable of building. What caliphate do they want to build? They can only break! Breaking life and fate. Yours and your loved ones including.

            Vendet, what they want_ they fulfill the will of the owners, puppeteers, call them what you want. Terrorism has become a dirty tool for some government agencies.

            The main goal of the terrorists is precisely this, and they are quite satisfied with "acting for a while". The terrorist sponsors have different, geopolitical goals.

            I don’t understand what the terrorists want to achieve.

            A blow to Egypt’s tourism ... foreign currency receipts to the country's treasury from the refusal of tourists to visit Egypt where tourists are so openly killed will decrease.
            In this light, you still have to think about whether it is worth resuming flights from our country ... a big risk of a new terrorist attack against our tourists arises.

      There are vague suspicions of where the money and orders come from! It remains only to voice and prove, or vice versa! But from a change of place, the result will not change!

        Without any suspicion, terrorism is the modern weapon of the United States.

      Each action has an initiator, with a specific surname, nationality and country of residence.
      I condole with the relatives of the dead.

      Terrorism does not exist - it is only a tool of the special services. Someone prepares, trains, equips.

      Well you give!

      If you, for example, from an explosion leg tore off (!), eye knocked out (!), lower jaw bone to the ground vomited (!) and eardrums ears completely burst (!) - then you are NOT a VICTIM, but only the "300th" ???? !!! just because you weren't killed.
      Oh well! Strange is your demagogy.

    Something in this attack is a lot of strangeness initially.
    First, the unknown attacked the tankers in the UAE, then the pumping stations in the SA were attacked by UAVs and here is a terrorist attack in Egypt.
    I understand that they will now find the Iranian passport at the scene of the explosion or the whole banner of the IRGC?

    It may turn out to be banal simple - crime, market sharing.
