Urgent: Destroying a Frigate of the Naval Forces of the Apostate Egyptian Army in the Mediterranean Sea

In a blessed operation for which Allah facilitated its causes, the mujahideen were able to target a frigate of the naval forces of the apostate Egyptian army in the Mediterranean Sea, north of Rafah, and that was with a guided rocket. It led to its complete destruction and the elimination of all who were in it, and unto Allah is all praise and gratitude.
