FILE - In this Monday, Aug. 13, 2012 file photo, newly-appointed Egyptian Minister of Defense, Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi meets with Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi, unseen, in Cairo, Egypt. An Egyptian intelligence official and a military official say 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/Egyptian Presidency, File)
