Captured in 1967, the Sinai Peninsula is returned by Israel to Egypt, as required by the 1979 Camp David Accords. Israel originally captured the Sinai Peninsula from Egypt during the 1967 Six Day War. Since then it has created settlements as well as dismantled Egyptian military bases, outposts, oil fields, etc.

The 1979 Camp David Accords signed by Menachem Begin and Anwar Sadat require that Israel withdraw completely from the Sinai and turn complete control back over to Egypt.
