A labor strike at the Egyptian port of Ain Sokhna is forcing a local transit company to ship Turkish goods through Israel instead, Egyptian daily Al Ahram reported on Monday.

Turkish shipments headed for Saudi Arabia were intended to pass through Ain Sokhna. They will now use the Israeli port of Haifa and transfer overland, Kadmar, the Egyptian firm organizing the transport, said on Saturday.
