Eastern parliament seeks Egypt’s direct intervention in Libya war

0 13

“Libya’s eastern-based parliament has approved a motion authorizing neighboring Egypt to directly intervene militarily in the country’s war if needed to counter Turkey’s support for the internationally-recognized Government of National Accord (GNA).”

“The body in Tobruk backs renegade commander Khalifa Haftar, who fought a 14-month, ultimately unsuccessful, campaign to seize Libya’s capital, Tripoli, from the GNA.”

“After months of impasse, Turkish military support helped the GNA to turn the tide of the conflict in recent weeks and drive Haftar’s self-styled Libyan National Army (LNA) – backed by Egypt, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Russia – from Libya’s northwest.” –Al Jazeera English
