Two Iranian warships passed through the Suez Canal a second time on their way home after a stop in Syria. The frigate and supply ship began crossing the canal early Thursday morning. They had arrived at Syria's main port at Latakia last week after becoming the first Iranian naval ships to pass through the canal since the 1979 Iranian revolution.
Two Iranian warships reportedly entered the Suez Canal, the first to pass through since Iran's 1979 Islamic Revolution. The ships entered the canal for the 10- to 12-hour crossing on Tuesday morning after receiving permission from Egypt's Defense Ministry, the Egyptian state-run Middle East News Agency reported.
