The General Authority for the Suez Canal Economic Zone closed on Thursday the Arish seaport due to the unstable weather conditions that prevailed in North Sinai.
“The port will be opened once the weather improves, to receive a number of ships for exporting Sinai products,” an official at the Economic Zone told Youm7.
“North Sinai governorate witnessed moderate winds with a noticeable decrease in temperatures,” the sources added.
