What does Daniel 11:42 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Daniel 11:42

He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries
Before mentioned, and take possession of them and rule over them, as the Turk does to this day: and the land of Egypt shall not escape;
the hands of the Turk by whom it was taken from the Mamalucs; and is now a province of the Turkish empire, and governed by a Turkish basha, with twenty four princes under him F1. This was not true of Antiochus, who, after he had been checked by the Romans, never entered into Egypt, and much less became master of it, as the Turk now is.
