According to the unconfirmed report, the patrol planes will be used to follow the activities of Sinai terror cells and pass on information to Egyptian ground forces operating in the peninsula.

 

Earlier Monday it was reported that a tank convoy reached the northern edge of the Sinai Peninsula ahead of a broad military operation against terror operatives in the region.

 

On Friday, a terrorist cell attacked IDF soldiers providing infiltrators with food and water in the Mount Sagi area on the Israel-Egypt border. One soldier, Corporal Netanel Yahalomi, was killed and another was injured.

 

Last month Egypt sent tanks and planes into Sinai for the first time since 1973, in direct opposition to the Camp David accords in order to battle against Sinai terror cells.
