    Background: Israeli soldiers encountered violent resistance on Thursday (22 April) as they cleared Jewish settlers from the rooftops of the Sinai town of Yamit in preparation for the handing back of the territory to Egypt on Sunday (25 April). Several people were injured in scuffles after troops sprayed foam on the rooftop protesters and then forced them into specially-prepared cages winched up by cranes. After the evictions, giant bulldozers started to raze the prefabricated settlement. Meanwhile, in Jerusalem, Prime Minister Menachem Begin met the United States' Deputy Secretary of State, Walter Stoessel, who is shuttling between Cairo and Jerusalem to iron out final details of the Sinai handover. Mr. Stoessel later told reporters that both Israel and the United States hopes the situation in the Lebanon will remain calm, following Israeli air attacks on Palestinian positions near Beirut on Wednesday (21 April).
