Breaking News: Stranded Ever Given container ship refloated, Suez Canal traffic resumes (video)


RT: The giant container ship that has been blocking the Suez Canal for almost a week, throwing global trade into chaos, has been refloated, the chairman of the authority in charge of the waterway has said.

The 400-meter long Ever Given has been successfully refloated, Admiral Osama Rabie, Chairman and Managing Director of the Suez Canal Authority (SCA) said in a statement.

The Panama-flagged vessel became lodged sideways in the canal – one of the world’s busiest shipping lanes – on March 23 after reports it had veered off course amid strong wind.

Rabie said that “successful push and tow maneuvers” on Monday had almost put the vessel fully back on course, with the stern now 102 meters away from the canal’s bank, instead of the previous 4 meters away.

More maneuvers are set to take place later in the day once the tide rises in order to position the ship back in the center of the canal, the SCA chief added.

  1. A+++++++++++ If they unloaded kidnapped human cargo containers used for the adrenochrome trade to refloat this vessel, I would like to observe who loaded them back up again. The Ever Given’s call sign is H3RC.

  2. Just to be “clear”, I regard this incident as a major communication from the planet, the wind, the placement and the timing, the object, the name, the entire thing.

    Every single square inch of that ship and everything on it, had to be dug out of the ground, and fashioned into what we see useful, and what have we “Ever Given” , back.

    The story of the apple tree giving and giving, until a stump remained. And if we find a copper deposit, we dig it all up, not questioning, what was it doing while it was in the ground, and how is it going to change things if we remove it ? Like clipping a wire in the back of a washing machine, and wondering what it does.

  3. The gross excess of humanity on display. That was a giant turd in the sewer main.

    We could easily as a country set a limit for size on these things. It would protect tons of oceanic life and prevent us from spending billions on our already decent enough harbors.

    • Suez, ever given. ever green ,… on the day of Ix.

      It is the cry of regret of the mother as her young plucks her own plumage from her head begging for more food,.well after they can care for themselves. The next thing is predictable entirely. The most glaring sign of higher intelligence, is a single simple wind, well placed and timed, that contains layers of lessons. Dozens and dozens. With undeniable obviousness.

  4. What a great moment for Syria to have to ration petroleum, just before Israel and US neocons conspire to do another 9/11-type false flag, this time blamed on Iran instead of the Arabs. Greater Israel, from the Nile to the Euphrates… That’s why Israel has no permanent borders and never will.

  5. From many years ago the zionists entity they have in folder a project to build another channel that competes with Suez but they need part of Gaza strip zone for do that. Maybe this “accident” it was like an reminder to someone to how convenient it would be have a second channel in “reliable” allied hands…

  6. This is awful. This means that Iran will be able to resupply their illicit shipments of fuel to Syria. CNN had reported that Syria had started to ration fuel supplies in order to keep water service running. We were on the verge of winning – says the cruel Hasbara troll.
    Do we know what caused the accident to begin with, could it have been sabotage?
