Israel—Syria Disengagement of Forces Agreement

   An agreement between Syria and Israel achieved in May 1974 through the shuttle diplomacy of Secretary of State Henry Kissinger of the United States. It brought about the reaffirmation of the cease-fire achieved at the end of the Yom Kippur War (1973), the disengagement and separation of Israeli and Syrian military forces on the Golan Heights, and the creation of disengagement zones between the opposing armies.
