Egypt Foils Attack on Suez Canal, Price of Crude Oil Soars

Egypt foiled a terrorist attack on a ship in the Suez Canal on Saturday and has increased security to protect ships and oil tankers. Authorities did not reveal details of the attempted attack except to say it was flying under the Panama flag and was a container vessel.

“The attempt failed completely and there was no damage to the ship or the containers it carried. The situation was dealt with strictly by the armed forces,” said Suez Canal Authority director Mohab Memish

The expectation of an American attack on Syria  drove up the price of crude oil last week to $112 a barrel, the highest in five years, before it settled back to a nearly three-year high of $108.

    My fear of Israel ships passing the Suez and the high costs that Egypt charges for using the canal, maybe Israel should make its own canal and transshipments to avoid this security and cost impediment.

  2. Egypt army and the IDF should take care the Suez Canal.
