History[edit | edit source]

Poverty in Egypt

Egypt was a battlefield during the Omnic Crisis. As the conflict inflicted a heavy toll on the country, Egypt's depleted and undermanned security forces relied on elite snipers for support.[1]

Seven years before the present day, Director Petras ordered a full investigation into the murder of an Overwatch official in Cairo. Sometime before this, Egypt was the site of a humanitarian crisis that Dr. Ziegler stated Overwatch didn't have the resources to deal with again.[2]

In the present day, poverty is an issue within the nation.[3]
