The agreement stipulated that Syrian civilians, forced to leave their homes in the buffer zone, would be able to join them, as they pledged to fight terrorist activities on the Golan Heights. Both commitments were made as an oral commitment to the United States. The agreement was followed by the creation of the United Nations Zone for the Use of Observer Force Disturbances (UNDOF), which designated 1,043 soldiers to hijack the buffer zone. [3] Finally, Israel agreed to withdraw from all the territories occupied during the war, consisting of about 25 square kilometres on the Israeli side of the purple line (the 1967 ceasefire line). In return, a 235 square kilometre buffer zone was formed on the Syrian side of the line. According to the witnesses of the participants in the negotiations, negotiations took place on the smallest details until the agreement was signed in Geneva on 31 May 1974 (more than seven months after the ceasefire was de-declaration). The negotiations gave rise to many misunderstandings and indirectly provoked the fire crises, such as when Israel agreed to return control of Syria to Quneitra, Syria interpreted it as if the region in question included the Avital and Bental mountains, while Israel only provided for the territory of the city itself. Negotiations continued under continued U.S. pressure on Israel. The agreement decided that the two countries would maintain the ceasefire and immediately bring back prisoners of war on both sides. Then, it was said, Israel would withdraw from all the enclaves and the summit of the Hermon it occupied during the war, and an area of about 25 km2 around the city of Quneitra and other small territories occupied during the Six Day War. Finally, two divisions were established: Israeli (marked in blue) and Syrian (marked in red), including a 235 km2 buffer zone on the Syrian side.
