Al-Mesmari: Major battle in coming hours, around Sirte and Al-Jafra

Libyan army spokesperson, Major General Ahmed Al-Mesmari, confirmed on Tuesday that the coming hours will witness a major battle in the vicinity of Sirte and Al-Jafra.

He said that there are major movements of Accord militia and Turkey in the vicinity of the two cities.

This comes after the Libyan parliament announced that it permitted Egypt to intervene militarily in Libya to "protect national security" for the two countries, stressing the importance of joining the two countries' efforts to "defeat the Turkish occupier."

The Tobruk-based parliament (east of the country) said in a statement: "The Egyptian armed forces are interfering to protect Libyan and Egyptian national security, if they see that there is an imminent threat to the security of our two countries."
