Former Military Intelligence Chief Amos Yadlin said Wednesday that Egypt's deployment of tanks to Sinai should not be a worry for Israel so long as Egypt cracks down on terror groups operating in the peninsula.

"Terrorism is fought with tanks," Yadlin, currently head of Tel Aviv University's Institute for National Security Studies, told Army Radio during an interview.

Yadlin argued that if the Egyptian operation in Sinai proves to be a wide-ranging counter-terrorism maneuver, Israel would need to adopt a realistic view of the presence of Egyptian forces.

Israel has already given Egypt approval to insert more military forces than the quantity specified by the 1979 Camp David peace treaty, Yadlin added.
