to Israel, recently delayed because of Corona Virus. How does that link Libya to Israel? In the posted video, from Israel's perspective, the proxy war is explained. That Libya is peripheral to the middle eastern core and despite Israel's seemingly ignoring much of the current events in Libya, the united view of the situation is eloquently stated.
 Libya is much more important to us than most Israelis realize... because it is now the linchpin of the fight between Egypt and Turkey.
Did Israel neglect Libya to some extent because of limited resources? The failure of Israel to discern the prior situation of Libya's nuclear energy aspirations in the 1990's is also discussed.

A big take away from the conversation is the Turkey/Egypt quotient between Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdo─čan with his grandiose Islamic agenda and Egypt's President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi who has been supporting opposition terrorist Haftar in taking over Libya. Now, with Haftar's impending doom, Sisi is spinning that support into a cease fire and peace plan.

Also, Russia's interference illustrates that President Vladimir Putin as well as Turkey's Erdogan know how to exploit Libya with the import of weapons into Libya; and involve Europe with the export of immigrants through Libya into EU, Italy and other countries. All this mayhem was made easier since the West abandoned Libya after the fall of despotic Muammar al-Gaddafi, former prime minister of Libya.
