Residents of settlements in the southern Sinai, at an emergency meeting Sunday in Eilat, demanded that the Sharm el-Sheikh area not be turned over to Egypt in any peace settlement. “Our region is an inseparable part of the economic strength of Israel,” the settlers said in a resolution. “We have turned a desert into a flourishing region and an attraction for tourism. We shall not agree to be placed under another sovereignty. The authorities should place us high on the list of priorities for development and settlement.”
