Egyptian Army Air Invasion of Libya Reported

In the Arabic-speaking segment of the Internet, information appeared about the entry of Egyptian troops into the active phase of the confrontation in Libya. According to unconfirmed reports, on June 22, Egyptian F-16 fighters attacked the positions of pro-Turkish mercenary troops and battle groups of the Government of National Accord. Aircraft took off from the Sidi Barrani air base and began moving in the direction of Misrat in northwestern Libya.

According to a number of sources, Egyptian fighters flew accompanied by air tankers from the UAE. Thus, airplanes of both countries invaded Libyan airspace.

Egypt, following some other states, is gradually entering into a military conflict in northern Africa. According to President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, Libyan events directly affect the situation in neighboring Egypt. He believes that Cairo has legitimate rights to intervene in the Libyan armed confrontation, since there comes a terrorist threat.

The cities of Al-Jufra and Sirte are “red” lines that we will not allow anyone to cross. Egypt will be firm in its intentions and actions.

- emphasized al-Sisi.

According to Arab media, the head of the US military command in Africa, Stephen Townsend, had talks with the leader of the PNS Faiz Saraj on June 22 - they discussed the aggravation of the situation in the country.

If Washington supports Saraj, then France, the Russian Federation and some Arab countries are on the side of Haftar. If the United States continues to support the government in Tripoli and Turkey, they may lose their European satellites.

    Egyptian Army Air Invasion of Libya Reported

    - Something of some kind of tongue-tied news ...
    - Most likely, we are talking about a violation of the air border of Libya ... - And then who will present a "diplomatic note" ... Egypt ... - Saraj or Haftar ???
    - In any case ...- personally, I am very surprised ...- honestly I did not expect such agility from Egypt ...
    - Something is "wrong" here ... - Well, Egypt cannot become a "third force" in Libya ... - he just has a gut for that ...

      It always comes from the little one. Example: China and India. First, the equipment was brought, then they started to shoot.
      Maybe Egypt has already managed to shoot with Libya?

    Egypt has enough strength. There would be determination. If it comes to the hot phase, then Turkey will not be able to arrange supplies to Libya. But Erdogan finally had a short circuit. Syria, Libya, Iraq. Does his belly button not get loose? Yes, and the Turkish stream began to prevent ...

      Erdogan needs sources of oil and gas controlled by him. And everywhere, no matter where it rushes, it turns out to be a bummer. And without hydrocarbons, he wouldn’t be an active player, they would block the pipe at any time.

        Contemporary politicians have clearly not read the Strugatskys "Monday starts on Saturday." They resemble the third cadaver model.

          Yes, there is also an eastern mentality involved. Very familiar from the construction battalion of SA.

    - And who should Egypt shoot in Libya ??? Egypt itself does not really know ... And if suddenly ... with the fall of Egypt on Libya (which is unlikely) ... - "both Libya" will suddenly unite and this "union" will be headed by Erdogan (Turkey) ... - And then they pile on Egypt on the first day ... - invade its territory ... - And while NATO is "arranging its own showdown"; and the United States also conducts its "Negro wars" ...; and the UN will only be indignant ... - cluck and flap its wings, and send "protest notes" ... - Erdogan will act ... - So they will seize the territory of Egypt; well, not all of them, of course ... - Then they'll give back some ... - But the whole is Near. The East will already be under the banner of Turkey ... - Erdogan will become a hero and an idol for everyone there ... - This genie will be released from the jug and begin to create whatever he pleases ...
    - Personally, I ... of course, I exaggerate ... - but Erdogan is capable of much ... - and of treachery ... - is capable first of all ...

      A long game of chess is possible in Libya ... It will be better for Russia to help R. Erdogan win and gain a foothold in Libya, which will direct Turkey's efforts southward. The situation is as follows: the Saudis with Egypt, France and others will become afraid of Turkish expansion in North Africa, at their fingertips, which will lead to a sluggish confrontation between the parties. Russia and Turkey have nothing to quarrel with, territories have been designated and fixed forever, and centuries of enmity over the past century, the cause of the enemies of Russia - the British and the imperial Germans. It is time to close the page of hostility with Turkey to Russia, although there was a short period with K. Atatürk of friendly relations with the USSR, but the Germans tried to entice and mushrooms to unleash hostility ... The situation and common interests will allow us to live in the beginning, at least not in friendship with Turkey , so in allies without fail and in mutually beneficial actions ...
