Issue with the following paragraph[edit]

I find it strange how in the second sentence of the following paragraph that a quotation is used as a complete sentence. I would have attributed it to the author in question. Less subjectively, the following sentence is also apparently a quote, given the elipsis between "governments" and "engaged", but it does not begin with a speech mark.

The British relationship with the United States did not suffer lasting consequences from the crisis. "The Anglo-American 'special relationship' was revitalised immediately after the Suez Crisis."[373] The United States wanted to restore the prestige of its closest ally. The two governments ... engaged in almost ritualistic reassurances that their 'special relationship' would be restored quickly", in particular Britain's first Hydrogen bomb test Operation Grapple which led to the 1958 US–UK Mutual Defence Agreement.[374]

Please add link...[edit]

This page is uneditable, therefore, I am unable to add "Sinai peninsula" as a link in the following paragraph:

"On 29 October, Israel invaded the Egyptian Sinai. Britain and France issued a joint ultimatum to cease fire, which was ignored...."

Can someone able of unlocking and editing the page, please add the link requested above if possible. I had no idea what "Sinai" was, and had to look it up through Google since no hyperlink was avaliable. Sorry if this isn't the place to ask for the request...didn't know where else to go.
