Port Said Coaling Islands

There were three prominent man made islands, used primarily for coaling, located just south of the Suez Canal entrance at Port Said.

They appear in early images and maps - pre WW1 - of Port Said and in aerial photos taken in 1956. They no longer exist.

Does anyone know when they were removed?
