Egyptian navy vessel erupts in huge fireball as ISIS carry out rocket strike on patrol ship

Extremists loyal to the Islamic State in Egypt have attacked a naval patrol ship in the Mediterranean Sea, causing it to burst into flames.

The Egyptian military said earlier a coastguard vessel had exchanged shots with militants just two miles off the coast of northern Sinai, an area bordering Israel and the Gaza Strip.

There were no fatalities among the vessel’s crew in the shootout with the terrorists, according to a Facebook message posted by military spokesman, Brigadier General Mohammed Samir.

    How many enemies can ISIS afford to have? How many fronts can they fight on?

        Perhaps their fanaticism has led them to believe that victory is ordained by Allah, and thus they can be strategically reckless.

          They believe that the more fronts there are, the more fighting and chaos, the better, as this will improve the chances of bringing about their version of Armageddon, in which the infidels are finally destroyed and Isa Ibn Maryam (muslim “Jesus”) comes to destroy all crosses. They are truly pious individuals (AKA insane).
