The Libyan National Army, led by Field Marshal Khalifa Hifter, confirmed on Tuesday that it has taken proactive steps in securing the sky and the air safety zone of Jufra – Sirte.
He also emphasized that major insurance steps had been taken to the eastern and border areas with Egypt with advanced S-300 air defense systems.
The Libyan National Army deployed the S-300 systems in the eastern border region with Egypt, and then secured that system with an advanced one, which is the Pok system.
The sources indicated that the S-300 air defense system is already in the presence of the army in Libya.
The deployment of these systems came with the aim of protecting Libyan lands from Turkish flying flights that were obtained by the “reconciliation forces” supported by the Turkish army.
It’s note mentioning that the House of Representatives in eastern Libya, in support of Field Marshal Khalifa Hifter, authorized Egypt to intervene militarily in Libya to “protect the national security” of the two countries.
The Tobruk-based parliament said in an official statement on Monday evening that “the Egyptian armed forces will intervene to protect Libyan and Egyptian national security if they see that there is an imminent threat to the security of our two countries”.
The statement called for “concerted efforts between the two sisters, Libya and Egypt, to ensure the defeat of the invading occupier, preserve our common national security, and achieve security and stability in our country and the region”.
The statement described Egypt as “a strategic depth for Libya at all levels, security, economic and social throughout history”.
