Suez Canal expansion being targetted by ISIS militants

The newly expanded Suez Canal is set to open in a months’ time, but according to several media reports, sources in Cairo, the US and Europe have warned that ISIS is intending to target the strategic waterway.

ISIS last week pushed further into Egypt, with more than 100 killed in bitter fighting between security forces and the militant group in Sinai and the Suez Canal has been put on a high alert for attacks after an attempt by the Muslim Brotherhood on Monday to bomb shipping in the canal.
