More than twelve United States battleships and at least one Israeli ship crossed the Suez Canal towards the Red Sea on Friday

According to the report, thousands of Egyptian soldiers were deployed along the Suez Canal guarding the ships' passage, which included a U.S. aircraft carrier.

The Suez Canal is a strategic Egyptian waterway which connects between the Mediterranean Sea and the Red Sea.

According to eyewitnesses, the U.S. battleships were the largest to have crossed the Canal in many years, Al-Quds reported.

Egyptian opposition members have criticized the government for cooperating with the U.S. and Israeli forces and allowing the ships' passage through Egyptian territorial waters.

They said the viewed the event as Egyptian participation in an international scandal, and added that the opposition would not sit with its arms crosses while the country allowed a fleet of U.S. and Israeli military ships to cross

Looks like the Iranian situation is going to get even more explosive

You may want to change the title. 12 warships have crossed the suez, not battleships. Big difference there. I'm not sure there's even 12 battleships left in the world that are seaworthy.
Anyhow, thanks for bringing this to our attention. It's not a good sign that they are building up forces in the Red Sea.
