Group behind Cosco Asia attack promises more Suez strikes – GulfShip News

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”.

Kevin Doherty, president of US security firm Nexus Consulting, said his company has issued heightened warnings to ships heading to the canal.
