London. April 3. INTERFAX-The American nuclear-powered aircraft carrier Dwight Eisenhower ("Dwight Eisenhower"), having passed the Suez Canal, entered the Red Sea, which is part of the area of responsibility of the US Central Command, the Egyptian information site Cairo24 reported.

According to the US Navy, last week an aircraft carrier strike group led by the aircraft carrier Dwight Eisenhower was in the Eastern Mediterranean. The carrier's carrier-based aircraft made a series of sorties in support of Operation Unwavering Resolve, which is being conducted against ISIL (a terrorist organization banned in the Russian Federation) in areas of Syria and Iraq.

According to US military publications, the aircraft carrier Dwight Eisenhower is heading to the Persian Gulf region.

The website Cairo24 reported that the missile cruiser Monterey, the destroyers Mitscher and Thomas Hudner, which are part of the US aircraft carrier strike group, also passed through the Suez Canal. In addition, the group includes a nuclear attack submarine with Tomahawk cruise missiles ("Tomahawk") with a range of 1.6 thousand km.

The carrier is home to 48 F/A-18E Super Hornet multirole fighters, as well as electronic warfare and long-range radar detection aircraft, transport aircraft, and anti-submarine and rescue helicopters.

Currently in the Persian Gulf on combat patrol is a French aircraft carrier group, led by the aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle ("Charles de Gaulle"), which temporarily performs the tasks of the American group.
