Israel Update: Egyptian Ship

Here is one that might up the ante a bit:

JERUSALEM (Reuters U.K.) - A missile fired at an Israeli naval vessel off Lebanon early on Saturday missed the target and hit an Egyptian boat instead, the Israeli army said.

"There has been another attempt to attack an Israeli naval vessel. It missed our ship and instead hit a different ship, an Egyptian vessel," an Israeli army spokeswoman said.

prying1 sez: Here is hoping that nobody was injured on the Egyptian ship and at the same time here is hoping the bad guys continue missing Israeli ships!

UPDATE - - - reports:

It was thought that a second land-to-sea missile had hit and sank an Egyptian merchant ship but it has since emerged that it was a Cambodian merchant vessel that was hit.

The 12 Egyptian sailors on board survived the attack and were collected from the water by other passing ships.
