Around 100 British troops are to be deployed in Egypt to help an international peacekeeping force.
Defence Secretary Michael Fallon announced that a squadron of the Royal Engineers will be sent there for up to 12 weeks, starting in March.
In a written statement to Parliament he said they would provide engineering support to the Multinational Force and Observers, which operates in the Sinai peninsula and works to oversee the 1979 peace treaty between Egypt and Israel.
The deployment begins in March 2016 and will involve approximately 100 personnel from the Corps of the Royal Engineers carrying out a range of infrastructure improvement works at the MFO main operating base in Sinai for up to 12 weeks.
The UK has a long history of supporting the MFO and currently provides the MFO with an engineer officer of the rank of major to serve on the force commander's staff.
