"There is not the slightest possibility that Israel will accept the modification of the peace treaty with Israel," Lieberman told Israeli public radio.
"We will not accept any modification of the Camp David accords."

The comments come as tensions rise between Egypt and the Zionist entity with speculation the government of President Mohamad Mursi could seek to alter parts of the decades-old treaty.

Ties are also strained over the issue of security in Egypt's Sinai, which borders the occupied territories and has increasingly become a haven for militants, some of whom have used the territory as a launching ground for attacking the Zionist entity.

On Friday, an Israeli occupation soldier and three militants who infiltrated from Sinai were killed in a clash along the border, after troops opened fire on the gunmen as they crossed the frontier.

Tel Aviv has urged Cairo to tackle the growing lawlessness in Sinai, and Egypt has responded by boosting its military presence in the peninsula.
"Egypt must fulfill its obligations in Sinai," Lieberman said on Sunday.

Egypt launched an unprecedented military operation in the peninsula after militants killed 16 Egyptian border police in northern Sinai on August 5.
The Zionist entity has warned that it expects Cairo to withdraw the military reinforcements once the operation was over.
