Egyptian military source: We’re considering modification of Egypt-Israel peace treaty

Al-Masry Al-Youm reports:

A well-placed source at the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces has said Egypt is currently studying the possibility of modifying the Camp David Agreement with regard to the number of military troops and equipment allowed into Sinai.

However, an Israeli source told the French news agency AFP that Egypt has not submitted a request in this regard.

At a ministerial meeting on Sunday, Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said his country is willing to consider an Egyptian request to bolster its troops in Sinai, although he said earlier there was no reason for the treaty to be modified.

Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak said the government is not willing to grant Egypt such request.
