An unexpected invasion warning just dropped and the news is spreading nationwide. People across the country — and even the world — are shocked by this breaking development.
Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sisi told “Egyptian military personnel they should be ready for combat missions beyond Egypt’s borders,” reported Breitbart News this week.
Specifically, Sisi included “Libya as a theater where Egyptian national security interests are threatened,” pointing to the nation’s western border and a “red line” he doesn’t want Libyan militia to cross.
The concern is compounded by the fact that the Libyan militia and Turkish forces have formed an alliance, whereas Sisi supports the Libyan National Army (LNA) in the dispute.
If necessary, Sisi has promised to deploy the Egyptian military to ensure the “stability and security” of Libya — both out of national interest and to maintain some semblance of peace in the region.
There is reportedly economic interest, too. Should Turkish forces and the Libyan militia cross the “red line,” a geographical demarcation between the cities of Sirte and Jufra, they could “plunder Libya’s oil wealth.”
