BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:30 P.M.) – In the event that a military confrontation occurs between Egypt and Turkey near the city of Sirte, the Egyptian military researcher Mohamed Al-Kinani told RT Arabic that it would cause the Turkish army “great losses”.

The Egyptian researcher indicated that the Turkish side is the one that will drain land, sea and air resources, due to the long distances through which it will be forced to secure supply and logistical support lines by its navy and air forces at a frightening financial cost.

He said in an interview with RT Arabic that “all of this is in front of forces of the size, capacity and experience of the Egyptian armed forces that will fight near its coasts, lands and airspace, and in a familiar and friendly environment that represents a direct strategic depth for them (east – central Libya), which provides them with the ability to form interlocking and intensified defense lines and multiple levels and layers allow.”

According to Kinani, the Egyptian forces “maneuver and move with tremendous advantage to drain the Turkish side and drag it into tight ambushes and incur heavy losses ”

He noted that the Egyptian army “will have a superior and advanced ability to compensate for losses and secure supply and logistical support lines, and at much shorter distances than they are on the Turkish side, which increases the difficulty of the task for the Turkish navy and aviation. They will never be able to muster all their combat capabilities in front of the Egyptian forces, given the urgent need to protect the Turkish airspace and the coasts that extend to the Mediterranean, Aegean, Marmara, and the Black Sea, as well as securing air, land, and supply lines from Turkey to Libya for a distance ranging between 1,500 and 2,000 km, and in front of a major enemy, which is Greece. He knows and knows the Turkish side well.”

He added: “Egypt did not define its red line from a vacuum, but rather based on planning and estimating a strategic position studied at various levels, and with full international and regional legitimacy.”
