The IDF has reportedly decided to grant all Egyptian requests to reinforce troops in the Sinai Peninsula hours after Islamic State-linked insurgents killed dozens of people Wednesday in a slew of attack in the region's north, according to Channel 2.

As a part of the 1979 peace treaty signed by the two countries, each country must approve any additional military forces in the area on either side of the border.

The IDF has been closely following the deadly exchanges of fire that ensued between Egyptian forces and Islamist fighters near the Israel border, following the terrorists' assault on multiple Egyptian checkpoints that left at least 70 dead.
