Israeli warships on “routine” patrol in Red Sea


JERUSALEM: An Israeli military official said on Tuesday that two additional warships had been stationed in the Red Sea but added that this was no more than routine.

He played down reports that they were connected to an Egyptian sweep of the Sinai peninsula for militants that has been reported in the Israeli media, although he declined to say what, if any, operational duties the ships were performing.

“I can confirm that there are two naval craft in the Red Sea. This is not unusual,” the official told Reuters.
