In a move likely to worsen tensions in North Africa, Egypt’s parliament on Monday approved a proposal authorizing military intervention in neighboring Libya, according to state media.

In a secret vote chaired by Parliament Speaker Ali Abdel Aal, parliament authorized Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi to “take all necessary measures to protect the country’s national security,” Al Gomhuria daily reported.

The decision comes a week after Libya’s Tobruk parliament, affiliated with warlord Khalifa Haftar, gave Egypt the green light to militarily intervene in Libya under the pretext of “protecting the national security” of both countries.

Last month al-Sisi threatened military intervention over Sirte and Jufra, calling them a “red line.”
