Egypt to help Haftar forces in Derna operation

Is Egypt really expanding it role in Haftar’s drive to take Derna? Eastern Libyan military commander Khalifa Haftar will lead an attack on Derna in coordination with Egyptian military forces, speaker of the Tobruk-based internationally recognized parliament Aqilah Saleh told Youm7.

The statement, brief as it was, is causing issues in Libya, as the rival Libyan Higher Council of State issued a statement condemning the Tobruk-based authorities for calling for Egypt’s military intervention in Libya, which they described as "a flagrant violation of the sovereignty of the Libyan state”, according to Xinhua. The statement urged the Government of National Accord and the United Nations to condemn the “dangerous” call.
