The security cabinet on Thursday approved a request from Defense Minister Ehud Barak to allow Egypt to deploy 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 area.

The approval came a day after the Egyptian army used air power against terrorists in the region.
