Egyptian tanks sent to Libya to thwart Turkish intervention in battle for Tripoli

A consignment of Egyptian T-72 tanks and APCs arrived in Libya on Thursday, Dec. 19, to bolster Gen. Khalifa Haftar’s Libyan National Army (LNA), which had just broken through to the southern outskirts of Tripoli. This consignment was personally ordered by Egyptian President Abdel-Fatteh El-Sisi, DEBKAfile’s military and intelligence sources reveal, along with instructions to a number of Egyptian air force squadrons to stand ready to support Haftar’s push to take the capital from the UN-recognized Government of National Accord.

El-Sisi took those steps in response to the Erdogan government’s reported plan to send over a volunteer force from the Turkish Muslim Brotherhood (SADAT) to help the GNA resist Haftar’s push into Tripoli. SADAT consists of former Al Qaeda and ISIS jihadists recruited in Syria by the Turkish MIT intelligence agency. Our sources add that a number of Hamas activists hosted by Turkey have trained with these units.
It was in reference to this Turkish intervention in the Tripoli battle that El-Sisi declared this week: “The Libyan government has been held hostage by terrorist militias in the capital, Tripoli.”

This week, the Libyan Muslim Brotherhood convinced the Tripoli government to formally apply to Ankara for military assistance to repel the Haftar advance.

Turkish military aid to the GNA thus far consists of 3,000 army “advisers” and a steady supply of weapons systems, including anti-tank rockets and drones.

Haftar’s army is solidly backed by Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Russia. The Egyptians provide intelligence, weapons and ammo; the Russians have deployed thousands of mercenaries, most from the Wagner Group contractors, some transferred from Syria to Libya; and the UAE recently supplied the Haftar force with a small squadron of six US-made Archangel ISR planes. These aircraft usually provide  police forces on the ground with surveillance and back-up fire. The Haftar army has turned them into bombers.
If Turkey goes through with its plan to deploy Muslim Brotherhood volunteers to Libya, The Egyptian air force will go into action for a showdown against Turkish intervention.

    What a brilliant opportunity to kill many birds at once for USA, Israel and the sane amongst Arab Nations
    There is enough trust between Israel and Al Sisi, to help dim if not extinguish the flames of Rabid Islam

      Israel is currently allied with Saudi Arabia – which is the very embodiment of Rabid Islam. Your view of the world is diverging more and more from reality, and it is making you psychotic.

          “Sisi was born in Old Cairo on 19 November 1954,[17] to parents Said Hussein Khalili al-Sisi and Soad Mohamed.[18] He grew up in Gamaleya, near al-Azhar Mosque, in a quarter where Muslims, Jews and Christians resided and in which he later recalled how, during his childhood, he heard church bells and watched Jews flock to the synagogue unhindered.”

We have learnt when they don’t say he was a white male we know it was a black male. America also has to hire 30 percent employees because they are black. It’s called affirmative action.

        sad commentary…that ‘small boil’ as you call it will event grow to a larger territory one day very soon…it will look as though Israel may get wiped out but God wont allow that…
        This source comes from that which for centuries people tried to discount, apparently calling it ‘fake stories’, but time and time again have been shown to be true.
        Also no need to ‘scribble some new scripts’ as what is written need not be added or taken away for what is said will be done.

      Israeli official media gatekeepers like Haartz will never put a Jewish operative especially one in such a high position at risk. They will create a story to prove cover and down play the most damaging points like his mother been Jewish. There is a reason why al-sisi was called a hero and inspiration to Jews world wide by Israel. Its because he is a Jew who has gained control of Egypt for Israel.

They know that Turkey was always their leader and will be in the future against vampirs and the exploiters. For a sustainable peace in the region, I advise everybody to be with Turkey. This will be for their advantage. Regards…
