The counter-terrorist operation of the Egyptian army affected not only Sinai, but also Libya

Cairo launched a powerful counter-offensive against jihadi cells. This large-scale operation affected not only the northern part of the country, but also the Nile delta, as well as the border with Libya, reports bmpd with reference to the french newsletter TTU.




At the end of 2017, the Egyptian power ministries were ordered to completely clear the country of armed groups close to the IG or Al-Qaida (both organizations are banned in the Russian Federation).

Since January 2018, “the Egyptian authorities have reportedly attracted significant forces, which consist of paratroopers, border guards, special operations forces and counterterrorism units and rely on unprecedented support from funds aviation intelligence. "

“However, it is not easy to clearly understand the Egyptian strategy and its results because of the informational blackout on the part of the Egyptian army, and first of all, how successful this operation is in those issues where previous operations have failed. However, the intervention of Israelis and Russian military advisers should lead to the emergence of new principles of warfare. And it is precisely in Libya that the true intent of this operation can manifest itself, ”writes the French edition.

Two weeks ago, the Egyptian President paid a visit to Abu Dhabi to coordinate his actions with Sheikh Mohammed. After that, several UAE air force combat aircraft arrived at the Egyptian military base west of Alexandria.

At the same time, the Libyan marshal Haftar met with the Egyptian leader in Cairo. As a result of the meeting, it became known that Libya, together with Egypt, was preparing an offensive on Dern, located on the highway from Cairo, and from where the militants leave daily to penetrate to the north of Egypt.

Last May, Derna was already bombarded by Egyptian aviation. In this area, Libyan troops are experiencing difficulties due to the reduction of their air force.

    No more military advisers to Egypt! To teach this army, not to respect yourself. All are thrown onto the battlefield, even with pristine ammunition. By the way, the Americans found the legendary installation of the S-75 through the Jews, which they captured from the Egyptians.

    On a mandatory basis, Russia needs an air base in Libya, and everything goes to this. Russian military advisers have long been working there, and Haftar is his own man. And there the base for the Navy will appear. Mattresses in the Mediterranean full tryndets come.

      Yes, and Haftar is his man

      If you remember H. Havtor, under the reign of Colonel Gaddafi, fled from Libya. and lived for several years in the USA with the full support of the CIA. Now this "Field Marshal" is a friend of Russia. Of course you don’t have to choose, But what this bunch of people smells like, you must not forget

        During the 2nd World War, the United States sent antibiotics to Ho Chi Minh on a special plane. During the Vietnam War, he sent messages to Johnson. American intelligence officers who collaborated with him until 1945 suggested that their leadership recognize Vietnam as independent and not let French troops into it. But Ho Chi Minh and his associates were considered weak politicians and were cruelly mistaken.

      are you kidding what is there to do to our advisers, whom to "advise"? the tribes can’t figure it out among themselves ... Haftar ... will he live to see the next year? The old one is already, and then, did he help Gaddafi to overthrow ... what kind of "tanker" is he?
