digging in their heels 和 整句意思

是在五月份的the economist的59頁看到的

關於塞普勒斯土裔和希臘裔紛爭的事

Greek-Cypriot "no" voters felt that the plan filed to guarantee adequate restitution ofr 160,000 or more people forced south by the 1974 invasion and let too many Turkish troops - 6000, as opposed to he present 30,000 - remain on the island, under a withdrawal ploan whose execution was not guaranteed.

從 as opposed to .....到最後not guaranteed.這邊看不懂

To many Turkish-Cypriots, it seemed as if their neighbours were selfishly digging in their heels, refusing to share power and money, when their bit of the island was on the brink of raking in all the benefits of EU entry.

digging in their heel是什麼意思?我查不到!

還有最後面的on the brink of raking in all the benefits也麻煩一下

謝謝

已更新項目:

不好意思,我有些字打錯了

為什麼as opposed to the present 30000是那個意思?

還有present在這裡是什麼意思?

    我試試囉

    as opposed to The present 30,000 - remain on the island, under a withdrawal ploan whose execution was not guaranteed

    前面說是6000, 這裡是說...我反對6000的說法應該是三萬人

    這些仍然被留在島的的人,是在一個不被保證執行的撤退計劃之中
