The Islamic State claimed responsibility for an anti tank guided missile (ATGM) attack on an Egyptian Naval frigate in the Mediterranean Sea.
The Egyptian Navy reported that their vessel caught fire after a battle with militants, and further reported no casualties.
Islamic State operations are on the rise in Egypt, and at least 17 Egyptian soldiers have been killed by ISIS this month. ISIS also claimed responsibility for detonating a bomb outside of Cairo’s Italian consulate last week that took one life.
Expect the heavily edited and filtered video release from ISIS propaganda outlets later this month.
