The appearance of attack Turkish UAVs over Libyan Sirte provokes a reaction in Egypt

27

The Egyptian information service "El-Balad" cites the statement of the representative of the Committee on Defense and National Security of the Egyptian Parliament, Ahmed al-Awadi, regarding the events in Libya, neighboring Egypt. According to the Egyptian parliamentarian, what is happening in Libya is an undoubted threat to the national security of Egypt.


Ahmed al-Awadi:

The Turkish military presence in Libya increases the threat to Egypt. And we view neighboring Libya as a natural extension of the Egyptian national security space.

According to the Egyptian MP, the country's armed forces "are watching Turkish drones take off from the Misrata area."

Ahmed al-Awadi:

We support a political settlement in Libya. But such a settlement is impossible in the event of a foreign military presence. And there is such a presence.

The Egyptian MP said that this kind of concern is expressed not only by Cairo, but also, for example, by Paris.

Egyptian parliamentarian:

France is making every effort to put an end to the dispute between Turkey and Libya and the interference of any foreign state in the affairs of another country, which hinders its stability.

It should be emphasized that on December 12, Turkish attack drones appeared in the skies over Sirte. Sirte is a kind of city of division of the Medzhu PNS Sarraj and the forces of LNA Haftar.

Earlier in Egypt, it was said that if Sirte is taken by pro-Turkish forces and the army of the PNS (National Consensus Government) moves eastward, then in Cairo an order will be given to send troops to Libya. It was the appearance of Turkish attack UAVs in the skies over Sirte that provoked a reaction from Egypt, including the reaction of Ahmed al-Awadi, who recalled the "red lines" in Libya.

And just a few hours ago in Tripoli, several agreements on cooperation were signed between the Libyan Defense Ministry (from the PNS Faiz Sarraj) and the command of the Turkish Navy.

    I would like to believe that the Egyptians will not confine themselves to words, and will strike at the places of deployment of Turkish equipment in Libya, and will not prohibit the import of Turkish tomatoes into Egypt "from the friend and partner of Erdogad" !!!

      Erdogan seems to want to crush Libya for himself, like Azerbaijan.

      The trick is that this does not threaten him personally, on the contrary, he is politely warned about upcoming coups. laughing But in his country he is popular to heaven. You can't argue with that.

        Popularity is such an ephemeral thing. As they say, there is only one step from love to hate. Will stumble over something and hello. And there the people are hot, southern, first they do, and then they think, and what we did. And GDP may not be near. And under Erdogan, many are digging and not only locals.

          And yes, it is always so. Even here, with us. I deliberately opened the articles in 2014 when they took Crimea. And I did not find a single bad word about GDP. No one spoke about stratification, or impoverishment, or voluntarism. So popularity as youth passes quickly wassat

          Ros 56 (Yuri) - over time, this may be exactly what will happen, but so far - when attempting a coup, thousands of people, ordinary Turks, took to the streets and practically "lay down under the tanks" defending their president ... what do you think, in a similar situation we have someone to climb under the tanks for our "guarantor" - eh? fellow

              I’m talking a little about something else - Erdik has a lot of enemies, but he has popular support, and this allows him to be so "skittish". hi

      Yes, a long time ago. Moreover, not only with Egypt, but also with its sponsors. And there is not a quarrel, there is basically a confrontation.

      The name of this "Europe" is France and Greece. The rest of the countries are doing well. Germany and Bulgaria are for Turkey, England is generally an ally.

      What's the difference what Europe, the USA and Turkey show on camera ??? The USA and Europe can quarrel with Turkey openly and secretly supply them with the most modern parts for the same UAVs and many others ...

      Well, the Egyptians seem to have something to shoot back with. And the terrain allows you to detect targets at great distances.

        Rzzz - Well, how the Egyptians fight, in general, it is known, they had "what" before, in the end they rolled them like a pancake in a frying pan, I don't think that something has changed now.
        And the Turks, at the very least, have combat experience, and they know it in Egypt, I think everything will be limited to puffing out their cheeks and adopting formidable poses - nothing more.

    The Tunisian Ministry of Defense has signed a contract with the military technology company TUSAŞ to purchase 3 ANKA-S UAVs from Turkey, for $ 80 million, and 3 ground control stations.

    if Sirte is taken by pro-Turkish forces and the army of the PNS (National Accord Government) moves to the east, then in Cairo an order will be given to send troops to Libya
    It remains only for Erdogan to grapple with Egypt with his plans. The intentions are huge, they want to designate their presence wherever possible and impossible, how else can the Turkish economy withstand and the trousers have not come apart at the seam?

      By the way, in all the Arab countries of northern Africa (Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, Libya) the same phenomenon is observed ... In the regions of tourism and regions where the colonialists used to live, there are still some remnants of civilization, and in other regions there is African chaos, desert, devastation, mountains of garbage and crowds of hungry candidates for mercenaries and terrorists !!!

    It looks like Haftar will lose this war. He himself definitely cannot be pulled out, and his support is frankly thin. For him stand the countries of the Dniester, of the decent only we and France.
