The same security conditions that have been agreed upon for the adjacent section of the Sinai will be applied to this area, in accordance with the peace agreement between Israel and Egypt.

  2. Israel will transfer to Egypt, a corridor-road, from the edge of territory that will be annexed by Egypt near the Sinai, to the Kingdom of Jordan, in which a multi-lane road and railway will passed. The area will also be appropriate for the passage of oil, gas, and water pipelines.

  3. In lieu of the area and the corridor-road that will be transferred to Egypt by Israel, Egypt, will agree to transfer to the Palestinian Authority, an area at least double in size (between 500 to 1,000 square kilometers), located to the south of Rafah in the Gaza Strip. The coastline will extend some 30kilometres towards El-Arish from the present Israeli-Egyptian border and the area will extend inland into the Sinai from the cost.

  4. In lieu of the territory that the Palestinian Authority will agree to transfer to Israel an area between 500 to 1,000 square kilometers beyond the cease fire line signed between Israel and Egypt, and Israel and Jordan in 1949 and in force until June 4, 1967.Exactly the same area that it will get from Egypt south to Rafah.
