Iranian navy ships return from Syria

Two Iranian warships sent by Tehran to the Mediterranean last week to help “train the Syrian navy” entered the Suez canal early on Tuesday on their way back to Iran, a canal authorities source told AFP, as Tehran warned it would take pre-emptive action against its enemies if it felt its national interests were endangered.The ships, a destroyer and supply vessel, came from the Syrian port of Tartous and were heading south towards the Red Sea, the source said, adding that they were due to complete their transit of the canal by Tuesday afternoon.
