Israel's security cabinet on Thursday approved a request from Defense Minister Ehud Barak to allow Egypt to deploy five attack helicopters in Sinai.
The approval was necessary because under the Camp David Accords there are strict limits on the type of weaponry that can be brought into the peninsula. Barak told Israel Radio that Egypt was acting "to an extent and with a determination that I cannot previously recall....Whether this ends with regained control of Sinai and allows us not to worry as much as we have in the past few months, this I do not know."
