Following unrest in the Sinai including a terrorist attack that killed 16 soldiers, Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi “is interested in amending” the country’s 1979 Camp David Accords with Israel “with regards to the deployment of forces in Sinai,” said his judicial adviser, Mohamed Gaddalah, the Egyptian newspaper Al-Masri Al-Youm reported.

The Camp David peace treaty currently stipulates that Egypt restrict military forces in the Sinai, which is partially demilitarized.

Additionally, Morsi has ordered his army chief to appoint new commanders for Egypt’s airforce, navy, military intelligence and military police, Gaddalah said.

“President Morsi is chief of command and it is his right to change the military establishment and high command as needed and demand changes to existing international military agreements,” he said.
