Egypt approves Libya deployment, risking clash with Turkey

The Egyptian parliament has approved the deployment of armed forces abroad to fight ’terrorist groups’ and ’criminal militias.’ A troop deployment in Libya could bring Egypt and Turkey, that support rival sides in the conflict, into direct confrontation. Egypt, alongside the UAE and Russia, backs Haftar, who abandoned an offensive on the capital Tripoli last month against forces backed by Turkey.
