Israel—Egypt Disengagement of Forces Agreement

   On 20 October 1973, the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) adopted UNSC Resolution 338, which called for an immediate cease-fire in the Yom Kippur War (1973) and the implementation of UNSC Resolution 242 and explicitly required negotiations "between the parties." Subsequently, Secretary of State Henry Kissinger from the United States negotiated the Israel-Egypt Disengagement of Forces Agreement of 1974. It brought about the reaf-firmation of the cease-fire achieved at the end of the Yom Kippur War, the disengagement and separation of Israeli and Egyptian military forces, and the creation of disengagement zones between the opposing forces.
