Group behind Cosco Asia attack promises more Suez strikes

Cairo: The group behind Saturday’s RPG attack on the Cosco Asia containership transiting the Suez Canal has promised more strikes. Al Furqan, which claimed responsibility for the attack by posting a video of the moment the Cosco Asia was hit, has since issued a statement entitled ‘Democracy is Infidelity’ promising further more severe action against ships crossing the canal. 

The group claimed it was “targeting the international shipping waterway which has become a safe route for crusader aircraft carriers travelling to attack Muslims, and a trade artery for infidel and tyrannical states”.
The Egyptian military has bolstered its forces, fanning out along the waterway and taking control of every canal installation in the past two days.
