Armistice Agreements

(1949)
   In the spring of 1949, Israel and each of the neighboring states signed an armistice agreement terminating the hostilities of Israel's War of Independence (1948—49). Iraq, although a participant in the conflict, refused to do so. The agreements were to end the hostilities and pave the way for negotiations for peace. The latter did not occur. The armistice negotiations were held under the auspices of United Nations Acting Mediator for Palestine Ralph Bunche. Egypt signed the armistice agreement with Israel on 24 February 1949, Lebanon on 23 March 1949, Jordan on 3 April 1949, and Syria on 20 July 1949.
