The Multinational Force and Observers (MFO) is located in the Sinai peninsula, Egypt and was established following the singing of the Camp David Accord on September 17, 1978 and the Israel-Egypt Peace Treaty on March 26, 1979. On May 18, 1981 the UN SC indicated that the UN would be unable to provide the force, and so the MFO came into being in 1982.
