The passage of two Iranian warships through the Suez Canal has been delayed by 48 hours or until Wednesday morning, Haaretz reported on Sunday citing a canal official.

Earlier this week, Egypt's new authorities approved a request by Iran to allow two Iranian warships en route to Syria to cross the Suez Canal. The passage was planned at 6 a.m. on Monday.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday Israel "views with utmost gravity" the move calling it an attempt "to expand influence."

Netanyahu told a cabinet meeting that the "security component is critical to any peace agreement."
