Ships train for Syrian chemical weapons transport

Published: 12.29.13, 14:32 / Israel News

A Danish-Norwegian flotilla is preparing to remove Syria's chemical weapons from the war-torn country by conducting emergency rescue drills off the southern coast of Cyprus.

 

Flotilla spokesman Eystein Malkenes Kvarving said Sunday the four-ship group is carrying out seaborne drills, including firefighting and ship-to-ship transfers of injured personnel. Two cargo ships and their warship escorts are waiting at Cyprus' Limassol port for word on when they can travel to Syria to begin hauling out more than 1,000 tons of chemical agents. (AP)
