Media: Egypt's three tank brigades guarantee a new status quo in Libya


Cairo's intervention in the Libyan conflict seems to be a done deal. But it is unlikely that this will become a relaxed walk for the Egyptian military, writes the NGO "For Human Rights" from Azerbaijan on its portal.


Human rights activists note that the Egyptian parliament has approved the sending of its military to carry out tasks outside the country. Now Cairo is awaiting a speech by President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi on this matter. The "Great Fire of War" in North Africa may break out soon.

Cairo has long stated that the Egyptians have every right to intervene in the situation in the neighboring country, since it affects the security and national interests of Egypt. Now this is formalized legally, since the House of Representatives of Libya (the parliament sitting in Tobruk) officially invited the Egyptian military to repel the Turkish aggression.

However, Algeria unexpectedly intervened in the situation around Libya. The authorities of this country have officially announced that if the Egyptian army crosses the border, it will be regarded as an attack on Algeria. At the same time, the troops of the Government of National Accord of Libya and their allies from Turkey are preparing to launch an offensive to recapture the port city of Sirte and the Al-Jufra air base from the Libyan National Army of Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, who is subordinate to parliament.

Cairo was at enmity with Tripoli during the reign of Muammar Gaddafi and now does not mind getting part of the territory to demonstrate the "rebirth of great Egypt."

The Egyptian invasion army will be 2-3 mechanized and tank brigades, which will support helicopters and aircraft. This, according to Cairo, should be enough to guarantee a new status quo in Libya.

If the PNS, with the help of the allies, succeeds in capturing Sirte, the position of the LNA will become very complicated. Sirte is the most important city in Libya. Those who own it control two-thirds of Libyan oil exports. Without oil, there won't be enough money to wage war.

Now everything depends on the decision taken by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. It is he who will decide whether to stop there or try to take Sirte and gain control over the oil in Cyrenaica (eastern Libya). Will overpower ambitions or the instinct of self-preservation, we will soon find out, summarize the human rights activists from Azerbaijan.

      I would not be so categorical. In terms of the volume of arms purchases in Russia, it is in 5th place, and they are taken not only from us.
      Available 300 pcs. T-90, the same number of T-72 and T-62, about 400 infantry fighting vehicles, about 40 Su-30, 20 MiG-29 (like even the MiG-29SMT), 30 pcs. Su-24, about a dozen MiG-25s, about a dozen Yak-130s, 40 Mi-8 / 17s, 30 Mi-24s, 14 Mi-28s. 6 submarines, 4 of them "Varshavyanka", with air defense is more and more complicated, there is not much information, like there are S-300 and Pantsiri.

      In general, I think they can boast of "fashionable pieces of iron" with the Egyptians, but most likely they will not fight, so we are unlikely to know what their armies really are.

      The French, however, were driven out.

        Considered from a purely military point of view, they suffered a crushing defeat. War and so on. the problems were resolved exclusively politically and thanks to de Gaulle.

          I'm talking about the results of the war, actually. And the Egyptians are stuck, definitely.

            So I am about the results of the war. You just don't know the definition of war.

            War is a conflict between political formations - states, tribes, political groups, and so on - that occurs on the basis of various claims, in the form of armed confrontation, military (combat) actions between their armed forces.

            The key is armed confrontation. And I just emphasized that it was exclusively from a military point of view. It was this (armed confrontation) that France won. But in the end they decided politically that they did not need Algeria in this form.

    Oooh, this is already an interesting batch planned! Variations arose here. If Algeria intervenes in an adult way, then the Turks will definitely not have a very sweet time if they take the risk. Although the Algerians are not so hot, they can do something.

      And for whom will they interfere, for "red or for white"? And there, under the distribution, you see, and Tunisia will fall.
      Morocco, an old "friend" of Algeria, will fit in. And "the troika will rush through the desert"! laughing

          For those in the front row, a stray bullet can fly. Better to observe from the gallery with binoculars and give advice by phone. And it's time for American blacks to create teams to liberate Africa ...

      Yes, the fact of the matter is that Algeria threatens Egypt, which means it is on the side of the Turks!

      There will be no mixing. Algeria for a peaceful settlement of the conflict.

    Egypt has only 1200 Abrams.
    Algeria will have to remove 50 SU-100s from storage.

      If they have more tanks, this does not mean that everything in Algeria is outdated.
      The Su-100 is a good car, against the background of the Egyptian "BTR-50 or Brandt 81-mm mortar model 1927/31" does not look so rare. winked

      And also the Turkish army with Leopards and other new and old equipment in large numbers.
