Repair of the Egyptian army-owned Uthman Military Airbase was completed.
In July 20, 2020, the Egyptian parliament approved the motion for Libya, authorizing Egyptian President Abdulfettah es-Sisi to send troops to Libya. Egypt, continuing the repair of its bases on the Libya borderline long before it was approved, completed the restoration of the Uthman Military Air Base, located approximately 70 kilometers from the Libya border.
The Uthman Military Air Base, located about 70 kilometers from the Libyan border, has been under repair for a long time. Many fighter jets and unmanned aerial aircraft are deployed today, especially at the airbase where the hangars and taxiways are repaired.
When we examine the image shared above, at least 4 (?) Dassault Rafale type warplanes of the Egyptian Air Force are spotted. There are also 3 MIG-29 type fighter jets. In addition, it is known that there are Wing Loong II drones of the United Arab Emirates, but the current situation of these drones is unknown today.
Also in early June 2020, videos of large numbers of tanks linked to the Egyptian army being shipped to the Libyan border were shared on Twitter.
The Egyptian army continues its fight against the terrorist group ISIS in the Sinai Peninsula, but ISIS has become a major threat to the Egyptian army in the region by using various methods of attack such as ATGM, hand-made explosives and raids, taking advantage of the undisciplined deployments of the Egyptian army every day.
