United Nations Disengagement Observer Force

(UNDOF)
   United Nations (UN) peacekeeping force established to monitor the Israel-Syria Disengagement of Forces Agreement of 31 May 1974. The force was authorized by UN Security Council Resolution 350. Its area of operations extended 80 miles from Mount Hermon in the north to the Jordan River in the south. Its original mandate was for six months, but this has been extended every six months since 1974. It is considered one of the most successful long-term UN peacekeeping efforts.
