FILE - In this Aug. 9, 2012 file photo, army trucks carry Egyptian military tanks in El Arish, Egypt's northern Sinai Peninsula. An Egyptian intelligence official and a military official say Egypt's defense minister, Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi told his Israeli counterpart in a telephone call Thursday that Egypt's increased military presence in the Sinai Peninsula is needed to fight terrorism and is temporary. Israel says Egypt has since moved tanks into Sinai without its consent -- which is required under the 1979 peace treaty between the countries. (AP Photo, File) less
