The Turkish parliament approved a draft resolution allowing the deployment of forces in Libya.
Erdogan seeks to send military support to Libya to support the Tripoli government headed by Fayez al-Sarraj, backed by armed militias and Islamist movements, whether in Libya or in Tunisia. 325 deputies compared to 184 voted in favor of the draft resolution, which came after the Libyan government asked for help from Ankara because of its attack by forces of Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar.
However, Erdogan wants his forces to be present in the waters of the Mediterranean for the sake of the Cypriot gas, which he tried to blackmail Egypt about when he resorted to moving the sleeper cells of the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood, which is classified as a terrorist in Egypt.
The Turkish government must obtain the approval of Parliament to be able to deploy troops in Libya, as it has done in recent years to send soldiers to Syria and Iraq. Italy rejects the Turkish military intervention in Libya and said it threatens its interests in its ancient colony.
