Defense Minister Ehud Barak said during an interview with The Economist magazine published Friday that Israel will agree to Egypt deploying thousands of troops in Sinai even though the Israel-Egypt peace treaty strictly forbids it.

Barak said during the interview, that "the troops will have helicopters and armored vehicles, but no tanks beyond the lone battalion already stationed there."
