The Algerian government has deployed a number of soldiers from the army on borders with Libya fearing the expected upcoming military intervention in Libya by foreign powers against IS.

A security source reported Sunday that the National Algerian Army has prepared its best for the securing of the Algerian eastern border with Libya, and the government has mobilized both navy and air forces to be on alert for any upcoming scenario on borders with Libya and Tunisia.

The Algerian President, Abdelaziz Butafliqa, assembled the army earlier this week and gave orders for full mobilization to confront any threats coming out from the aftermath of the possible intervention in Libya.
