Egypt: The three brothers left the city of Burj Al Arab near the Egyptian city of Matrouh in search of falcons as the only source of their livelihood, turning their story into a tragedy that will remain in the memory of the tribes of the Western Desert in the governorates of Matrouh, Alexandria, Beheira and Minya, and with them Siwa.
The tragedy of the three fishermen ended with their death of starvation and thirst in the desert after an 8-day wandering trip, according to the local newspaper.
Kilometres separate the bodies of the older brother, his son, and his younger brother.
Big brother Ramadan buried his 10-year-old son Shaheen, who named him after the most precious thing he had, the Falcon Shaheen, and 4 kilometres away, his younger brother “Musaed” died of starvation and thirst, so he buried his brother, only to find his body is about 7 kilometres away from his brother’s body in the desert.
The three young men from the city of Burj Al Arab have been missing for eight days in a row, and their families have not received any correct information about their whereabouts.
All available information confirmed that they went on a hunting trip in the Hamraiya area on the Matrouh-Alexandria border in the south of the desert, and they did not return.
The three fishermen are: Musaed Bu Hatita Abu Mutair, his older brother Ramadan Abu Hatita Abu Mutir, and his son Shaheen Ramadan.
About 150 four-wheel drive vehicles went out to search for the three missing persons to roam south of the desert in the area where contact with them was lost. One of the fishermen says that the tribesmen did not delay the “Fazaa”.
On the other hand, the search operations for the missing youth were carried out with the knowledge of the people in the Matrouh Governorate. Tribal youth in Matrouh, Alexandria, Minya, Beheira, Siwa and all those involved in fishing operations participated in the search operations.
The people of the tribes also used the “jar” retribution, which is the person who has the ability to follow the trail of the missing in the desert, whether he is a man, a woman or a child. The tribes are combing with their four-wheel drive cars the Ghoroud area south of El Alamein and the area south of Burj Al Arab, to which the missing youth went to the last hunting operation. Then they were found dead.
After tracing their tracks, they found the little boy buried and above him a sign of wood that his father put on him after confirming his death. Also, to find its location and between it and the body of his son about 4 kilometres.
He completed the retribution of the trail and found the body of the older brother Ramadan, about 7 kilometres away from the body of his younger brother, so he knew the scenario, and it was arranged so that they could learn about the scenario of life and death in the desert and the eight-day maze as drawn by the track cutters.
