In response to reports that Egypt and Israel have agreed to increase the number of Egyptian troops in the Sinai border region, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Sunday said that any such decision must be approved by the cabinet.

The move to deploy troops in Sinai would change details outlined in the peace agreement with Egypt. "Security arrangements must be dealt with, and we must invest more resources in building the barrier on the border with Egypt," Netanyahu said.

Netanyahu made the comments during a forum of Likud ministers before the weekly cabinet meeting.
