Egypt is ready to enter Libya: the country's parliament issued a mandate to send troops

The Egyptian parliament has given the country's President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi a mandate to send troops to Libya. The decision was made on Monday at a closed meeting. This is reported by TASS with reference to a source in the Egyptian parliament.


The source said Egyptian troops will enter Libya to protect the national security of the state.

The Egyptian Parliament has agreed that the army will support the Libyan people. MPs give President al-Sisi and the military a mandate to protect Libya and the national security of Egypt and the Arab states

- the agency leads the words of the source.

Later, an official statement appeared in the press following a meeting of the Egyptian parliament.

The Council unanimously approved the dispatch of units of the Egyptian Armed Forces to carry out combat missions outside Egypt's borders in order to protect its national security in the strategic western direction from the actions of armed criminal militias and foreign terrorists until the completion of this mission.

- the document says.

Earlier, the Libyan House of Representatives, sitting in Tobruk, called on the Egyptian armed forces to intervene in the war to protect the country's national security. The Egyptian Parliament issued a statement saying that the Egyptian armed forces have the right to intervene in the Libyan conflict, "if they see an imminent threat to the national security of the two countries."

In addition, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi did not rule out military intervention, saying that the Egyptian army would move "if the Libyans ask." At the same time, he warned the TNC and Turkey that Cairo would not allow anyone to seize the LNA-controlled Haftar Sirt and El-Jufra, calling them a "red line".

      They would still have to enlist the support of the Arab League, but there Qatar, Algeria, Tunisia and, possibly, someone else would oppose such interference. And so, well done Egyptians, Cyrenaica cannot be given to the Turks.

          In general, the PNS was created as a temporary, transitional government. And, in general, there is the parliament officially elected by the people, which gave Haftar the powers. And this parliament did not invite the Turks to Libya, just as no one called them to Syria. In general, Turkey is a Middle Eastern analogue of the European "hyena" of Poland.

          Yes, Russia at one time recognized the PNS so as not to lose everything in Libya. Then Haftar did not have a strong influence in Libya. Then, as he began to spread his influence, Russia, unofficially, began to support Haftar without breaking off relations with Saraj. The purpose of this behavior is obvious - in any case, to preserve their interests in Libya. And they were very big there. These are military contracts, oil contracts, and infrastructure projects. But, as Turkey's influence on Saraj increased and Haftar's tempting offers, Russia switched to providing him with substantial military support.

          All these requests of the "legitimate government", the legitimacy of which, in fact, is simply insignificant - this is just a fig leaf for presentation to the public. The policy is being pursued based on the real balance of forces and means in the country. Do you really think that Assad was supported by the majority of citizens in 2011? Of course not. The Sunni majority of Syrians did not support and do not support Alawite Assad. The Americans took advantage of this in 2011, trying to overthrow him. But Assad had a large part of the army, the officers of which are mostly Alawites. As a result, we got a civil war, actively supported and sponsored from abroad. If not for the direct intervention of Russia, Assad would have been torn apart in the same way as Gaddafi.
          Answer the question, for you Lukashenka, who has a real rating of about 3% (plus or minus a few points) according to absolutely all non-state studies and polls, and for whom Yarmoshyna will draw 70% in the upcoming elections, is a legitimate president for you?

If Egypt really enters Libya, then I think that we will see battles with widespread use of UAVs and it is far from the fact that the armada of Egyptian tanks will be effective ...

    Algeria launches Iskander deployment amid Egypt's readiness to invade Libya

    Over the past nine months, the Algerian authorities have been pulling units of their National People's Army to the borders of Libya and Tunisia. Now, against the background of the readiness of the Egyptian army to invade Libya, the Algerian military began to deploy the existing Iskander-E OTRK.

              The coastal route of the Egyptian trucks is relatively protected (unless the Turks risk using ships and aircraft), but the Algerians will drive along the road past the oil fields of Sharar, where PMCs sitting there can fly along their columns.

                Even without Algeria, the Turks will meet the Egyptians so that Sisi in the desert will lose landmarks and directions. For more than a week, Turkish cargo planes have been intensively flying from Turkey to the Libyan airport Al-Watiyah. They have declared the Sirta area a no-fly zone, bringing up 8 ships closer 6), which have highly effective air defense and REB. This means that Sisi is disabled by air, and a flock of UAVs will disassemble land-based UAVs on the approaches to Sirt from the eastern side. Egypt will lose in disgrace, and this will raise opposition in Egypt itself, and Sisi will fly away to the UAE to spend there the rest of his life, if he has time to get out of Egypt.

      "Torgash (not a warrior!)"
      The al-Sisi government changed industry regulations to make it easier for the army to do business. It expanded the ability of the military to enter into real estate deals and allowed them to create pharmaceutical companies. When Egypt's currency crisis hit a shortage of sugar and other food in 2016, the army began selling it at discounted prices straight from trucks. She also supplied discounted baby food through pharmacies and portrayed this as a victory over private "greedy monopolies and dairy companies."

          "And I used the word" huckster "about the genetic entity itself, which only has" rob caravans "in its head." You would have to decide. The trader (merchant) leads the caravan, and he cannot rob the caravan, on the contrary, he is being robbed. The robber is not a tradesman, since he is robbing a caravan of traders.

            The one who robbed the "caravan", when selling the stolen goods, becomes a merchant - this is a common truth, just like the centuries-old way of life in "delicate" oriental affairs. And whoever does not agree with such predatory refinements and buy-and-sells, for some reason, they are credited with "disrespect and arrogance." Perhaps your compatriot, who was exhausted while waiting for trophies in the posts above, does not cause indignation in you.
            And we are better because we do not allow some peoples to shoot each other. And we do not expect gratitude for this.

              "who is all exhausted in anticipation of trophies in the posts above, does not cause indignation in you." Let me tell you a secret that during battles there are trophies, and we talked about this above, meaning that the enemy will flee. In this sense, they talked about a trophy that a fleeing enemy would leave. And, according to your logic, the Soviet troops should not have taken the German trophies, due to the fact that they would be called a merchant?

                  "where is such confidence," History. The Turks created many empires and each of them lived for many centuries. The last Ottoman Empire, which lived for more than 600 years, and most of this period they ruled over the same Egypt. To create an empire and keep it on its feet 600 years, without the will of militancy, military planning, and without a faithful society to your country, you can't do it. The famous history of Egypt, only losses. In addition, the structure and discipline of troops today. The Turks have real military personnel, professional, they get stars without any indulgences, disciplined, devoted to their work, equipped with their own modern weapons and systems, if not even their own (like the F-16), they still mastered it long ago as their own. The Egyptian army, just the same merchants, in the direct sense. link, what they are doing. Not in the past, not today, and not in the future, Arabs are not like the Turks in military affairs. This is an Axiom.
