Lawmakers unanimously approved "the deployment of members of the Egyptian armed forces on combat missions outside Egyptâ€™s borders to defend Egyptian national security against criminal armed militias and foreign terrorist elements,â€ the parliament said in a statement.
Monday's vote took place in a closed session during which parliamentary leaders debated "threats faced by the state" from the west, where Egypt shares a porous desert border with war-torn Libya.
Sisi has cautioned that advances on the city of Sirte could trigger Egyptian military intervention by forces supporting the western Libyan-based Government of National Accord, also known as GNA.
