The United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) was established by Security Council resolution 350 (1974) of 31 May 1974 to:

  • Maintain the ceasefire between Israel and Syria;
  • Supervise the disengagement of Israeli and Syrian forces; and
  • Supervise the areas of separation and limitation, as provided in the May 1974 Agreement on Disengagement.

Since then, the mandate of UNDOF has been renewed every six months. Resolution 2718(2023) adopted by the Security Council at its 9516th meeting on 21 December 2023 decided to renew the mandate of UNDOF for a period of six months, that is, until 22 June 2024.
