Iran Naval Ships Plan To Cross Suez Canal On Tuesday

The Egyptian agent for two Iranian naval ships has requested that the vessels pass through the Suez Canal on Tuesday, a canal official said.

Israel has said it takes a "grave view" of the Iranian move, which will involve an Iranian frigate and a supply ship.

The northbound convoy from the Red Sea to the Mediterranean leaves at 6 a.m. (0400 GMT), according to the Suez Canal schedule.
