Chad is reinforcing its military presence near the Libyan border to ward off any rebel incursions following a deadly attack on army positions in the area this month, according to two people familiar with the matter, Bloomberg reported.

War planes have been deployed to the northern town of Faya-Largeau and large military convoys have been seen leaving the capital, N’Djamena, the people said, asking not to be identified because they’re not authorized to speak publicly, according to Bloomberg.

The government has the situation under control and any rumors of a rebel offensive are false, Public Security Minister Ahmat Bachir said on state radio late Wednesday.
