Farkha, I think you need to do some "rechecking", if you are actually doing that puzzle. The name of that peninsula in English, the language of the puzzle being discussed, is spelled S-I-N-A-I.

The Sinai Peninsula or Sinai; Arabic: سيناء‎ sīnā'a; Hebrew סיני) is a triangular peninsula in Egypt which is about 60,000 km2 (23,000 sq mi). It lies between the Mediterranean Sea to the north, and the Red Sea to the south, and is the only part of Egyptian territory located in Asia as opposed to Africa. In addition to its formal name, Egyptians also refer to it affectionately as the "Land of Fayrouz", based on the Ancient Egyptian "Dumafkat", which has the same meaning. The peninsula is divided into two Egyptian governorates, and has a population of approximately 1.3 million people.
