(Worthy News) - An Islamic State affiliate in Egypt's Sinai said Thursday that it has destroyed an Egyptian navy vessel with a rocket off the strategic peninsula's Mediterranean coast, the Times of Israel reported.

The claim of responsibility by the Sinai Province of the Islamic State, as the group calls itself, was made in a brief statement posted on Twitter accounts known to be linked to the group.

Egypt's military spokesman, Brig. Gen. Mohammed Samir, said in a statement earlier that the vessel caught fire in an exchange of gunshots on Thursday with 'terrorists' on the shore. [ Source ]
