BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:45 P.M.) – The leader of the Ansarallah Movement, Mohammad ‘Ali Al-Houthi, issued a statement regarding Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi’s remarks about his country’s possible intervention in Libya.
Al-Houthi tweeted on Sunday: “We do not advise the brothers in the Republic of Egypt to intervene militarily in Libya, even if it is the result of concern about the Turkish presence there.”
He added: “Exhaustion in these battles does not work and what is presented will be stressful if not more, and the real danger is in the entity continuing with its conspiracies through which it wants to secure its future by igniting fake and side battles without value.”
It should be noted that the Egyptian President had stressed on Saturday that the Egyptian army is able to defend the country’s national security inside and outside its borders, while inspecting a base in the western military region near the border with Libya.
This comes against the backdrop of the military escalation in Libya, where the Turkish-backed Government of National Accord (GNA) forces have achieved tangible field successes recently against the Libyan National Army (LNA).
