The Suez Canal Authority stated that nine tugboats have already participated in the rescue work, and the canal is expected to resume normal navigation as soon as possible.
On the 23rd, a huge cargo ship ran aground on the new channel of the Suez Canal, causing congestion in the channel.

The Suez Canal is an important international shipping route connecting the Mediterranean Sea and the Red Sea and through the three continents of Europe, Asia and Africa. In August 2015, Egypt opened a new channel in the northern section of the original Suez Canal channel, which provided two-way navigation conditions for the original channel and improved the navigation efficiency of the canal.
