BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:30 P.M.) – The official page for the Turkish-backed Government of National Accord’s operations room said that “a huge Egyptian military convoy deployed to the borders with Libya.”

According to the “Volcano Anger” operations room, the Egyptian Army traveled to the Libyan border to support the Libyan National Army, but they did not enter the war-torn nation.

They claimed that  mission of these forces is confined only to strengthening “military points between the two countries.”

Accounts on social media had published videos that they claimed were a large column of Egyptian tank carriers heading to the border with Libya, and trains transporting equipment and military vehicles moving in the same direction.

However, a source has denied the authenticity of the videos, saying that one of them is clearly old footage of an Egyptian military exercise that was carried out a few years ago.

Since the Cairo declaration, the pro-GNA media has alleged that Egypt is planning to intervene in the country to challenge the Turkish Armed Forces.

Despite these claims, there has been no statement from Cairo about a possible military deployment to Libya.

The Egyptian authorities maintain strong relations with the Libyan National Army and they continue to coordinate with them along the border.
