The Tobruk-based House of Representatives, which is loyal to Khalifa Haftar, has requested military intervention from the Egyptian Amy for "the national security of the two countries".

The House of Representatives (HoR) said Monday in a statement that the Egyptian Amy is invited to intervene in Libya if there is an imminent threat to the national security of both countries, adding that Egypt is the strategic depth of Libya's secured economy and society as well.

The HoR also welcomed Egyptian President's call on tribes' representatives to be present on the scene after urging for arming Libyan tribes last month.

Previously, HoR Speaker Aqila Saleh said he was with Egypt's intervention in Libya, saying it is legitimate as it will secure its rights and western borders with Libya.

Egypt's President Abdel Fattah El Sisi said earlier that any direct intervention for his country's army in Libya would be legitimate as per international laws, which stirred condemnations across Libya and the world as many parties inside Libya and countries in the region and the West thought El Sisi was declaring war and inciting Libyans to fight one another.
