Al Qaeda's New Indian Branch Laughing Stock Of The Terror World [PHOTOS]

Decline: With an unprecedented wave of extremists pledging allegiance to rival Islamic extremist group ISIS (pictured), Al Qaeda is struggling to recruit new members to its cause and is even suspected of claiming responsibility for failed attacks it did not actually carry out in order to appear more active

The newly-formed branch of Al Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent has botched its first attempt at a terror attack after jihadists mistook a Pakistani naval ship for a U.S. aircraft carrier.

Ten heavily armed militants from the terror cell had planned to storm an American military vessel in Karachi's sea dock - but found a Pakistani naval frigate in it's place.
The men were easily overwhelmed before they could do any damage, investigators said, with three of the militants killed and the remaining seven arrested.

Al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri formally announced the founding of a terror cell in the Indian subcontinent two weeks ago in the hope of reviving his ailing extremist group, which has suffered diminishing support since the unprecedented rise of rival Islamic extremist group ISIS.

Despite the failure of the terror attack on September 6, Al Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent claimed responsibility - adding that the men involved were all former members of the Pakistani navy.

'The Naval officers who were martyred on Saturday in the attack on Karachi were Al Qaeda members. They were trying to attack American marines and their cronies,' the group said in a statement released last Thursday. 

'The Pakistani military men who died defending enemies of the Muslim nation...are cursed with hell', they added, apparently still incorrectly believing the attacked vessel had been a U.S.aircraft carrier.

The craft the group intended to strike may have been the USS George Washington, believed to have been stationed off the coast of west Pakistan on the day of the incident, having left Japanese waters the previous day.

Investigators have also denied that the militants were all former members of the Pakistani navy, saying only one of the 10 men was from a naval background.

News of Al Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent's failure to carry out the terror attack was met with mockery by ISIS sympathizers on social media, who branded the group out of date
