Official publication of the truce agreement signed between Israel and Syria in 1949, printed by the Israeli Government. In 1948, the year following the first Arab-Israeli War, separate armistice agreements were signed between Israel and Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan, and Syria. These pacts ended the war and established the armistice line, also known as the Green Line, between Israel and Jordan. From 1950 onward, Britain, France and the United States participated in protecting this border as armistice enforcers. The armistice line was maintained until the Six-Day War in 1967.

The agreement with Syria, the last of the four, was signed near Kibbutz Mahanayim in northern Israel on 20 July 1949. The agreement stipulated that Syria would withdraw its troops from the areas it had captured and that area would be accepted as a demilitarized zone. For achieving the 1949 Armistice Agreements, the U.S. negotiator Ralph Bunche received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1950


Browning, stains on the wrappers, but internally clean. Traces of a horizontal fold.
