The New Arab disclosed Monday that the military tactics for the Dignity Operation militias for attacking and advancing on Derna have been approved by Egypt and even gained promises for monitoring by Egypt. 

A source told the New Arab that Egyptian forces could take part in the land operations that aim at advancing into Derna, besides the air cover and support by Egyptian warplanes and all other needed military support. 

The source added that the secret visit of the commander of the Dignity Operation militias, Khalifa Haftar to Egypt, which started last Wednesday, had ended after discussing the military cooperation in attacking and seizing Derna in eastern Libya. 

Haftar’s so-called general command announced days ago preparing for the battle of “liberating Derna” as the siege got tightened on the city and the civilians inside.
