Egypt That You Don't Know
This is very likely an upper level condensation sheared by the wind. It doesn't look like a plane exhaust or fire. The colour is due to the twilight effect of the setting sun.The Jetstream (upper level winds) is a bit active over Northern Egypt and there is a bit of humidity up high (160 km/hr) at 10km altitude and humidity > 40%. It goes from West -> East. Apparently you were also driving, in an East -> West direction, parallel to the cloud as well.
