Mandate

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 2671(2022) adopted by the Security Council at its 9362th meeting on 29 June 2023 decided to renew the mandate of UNDOF for a period of six months, that is, until 31 December 2023.
