سفينتا إنزال أمريكيتان تدخلان قناة السويس بمصر
Egypt: Two U.S. assault ships enter Suez Canal
مشاهير123- الاسماعيلية  - قال مسؤول في قناة السويس ان سفينتي إنزال أمريكيتين هما كيرسارج وبونسي عبرتا قناة السويس يوم الاربعاء ووصلتا الى البحر المتوسط. وقالت الولايات المتحدة يوم الاثنين انها ستنقل سفنا وطائرات لتكون على مقربة من ليبيا التي تشهد انتفاضة شعبية ضد حكم الزعيم الليبي معمر القذافي. ويمكن للسفينة كيرسارج أن تحمل 2000 من أفراد مشاة البحرية.
English: Machahir123 - ISMAILIA, Egypt - Two U.S. amphibious assault ships, the Kearsarge and the Ponce, entered Egypt's Suez Canal Wednesday, on their way to the Mediterranean, a canal official said.
The ships were at the southern mouth of the canal, the official said, adding that they were expected to pass through by 3:30 p.m. (1:30 p.m. British time) or 4:00 p.m..
The USS Kearsarge and the USS Ponce entered accompanied by tugs to secure their passage, the canal official said.
The United States had said Monday it was moving ships and planes closer to Libya, where a revolt against Muammar Gaddafi's rule is under way. The Kearsarge can carry 2,000 Marines.
The repositioning of U.S. ships and aircraft closer to Libya is widely seen as a symbolic show of force since neither the United States nor its NATO allies have shown any appetite for direct military intervention in the turmoil that has seen Gaddafi lose control of big swathes of the North African state.
Monday the USS Barry, a destroyer, moved through the Suez Canal and was now in the southwestern Mediterranean.
