Possible Egyptian 'direct' intervention in Libya becomes legitimate: President Sisi

Possible Egyptian 'direct' intervention in Libya becomes legitimate: President Sisi

http://egypttoday.com/Article/2/8877...President-Sisi

"CAIRO 20 June 2020: President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi checked on the forces in the Western Military Zone Saturday telling them, "The Egyptian Army is one of the strongest in the region. Yet, it is a wise army that protects but doesn't threaten, and is able to defend the national security of Egypt within and beyond its borders."

The president said that the Air Force, the Special Forces, and the Border Guards have been securing 1,200 kilometers of borders with Libya for seven years, and accomplishing missions that have not been disclosed.

"I'm so happy to meet you today. I got assured about the high status of your combat and technical competence. I see the Air Force and Special Forces are ready to accomplish missions," the president told forces.

"Be ready to accomplish any mission whether here within our borders or - if needed beyond our borders," president Sisi addressed the Air Force elements in the Western Military Zone. ..."

Looks like the situation next door is beginning to irritate Sisi.
