The Egyptian military forces have been deployed on the borders with Libya and Sudan in Jabal Al-Awinat district in order to deter any terrorists’ infiltration, according to London-based Al-Hayat Newspaper.

The Egyptian army will be positioned there and will be on alert 24/7 for any terrorist threats coming from the Libyan borders, according to the newspaper.

“Any attempts that will target the Egyptian national security coming from Libya or Sudan or any other place will be dealt with by force.” An Egyptian official told the newspaper.

Egyptian warplanes raided Friday Derna city on what it said locations for Derna Shura Council, and they are believed to have raided Hun town on Sunday as well.
