Cairo: Egypt is mulling to send ground troops to Libya after launching targeted airstrikes against a branch of the Islamic State group in Libya Monday dawn, few hours after IS released a video of the mass execution of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians by beheading by the Libyan coast, a military official said.

Egypt may send the Task Force 999, an Egyptian military special operations and reconnaissance unit for international operations, to Libya, the official told Youm7.

The unit forces would coordinate with the Libyan security forces in the areas along the Mediterranean coast, the official added.
