Security Council draft statement on UNDOF/ Syria

The Security Council is discussing this (revised) draft statement which was proposed by the US, diplomats said. 

Draft Security Council Press Statement
The Members of the Security Council condemned the repeated violations of the 1974 Disengagement of Forces Agreement by the Syrian Arab Armed Forces, in particular that of November 3 in which the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) observed Syrian Arab Armed Forces conducting operations with at least four tanks inside the area of separation and that of November 8 in which three shells fired by the Syrian Arab Armed Forces landed to the West of Line A. The Members of the Security Council called for an immediate halt to these violations, which have the potential to jeopardize the ceasefire between Israel and the Syrian Arab Republic.
The Members of the Security Council called on all parties to abide by the terms of the 1974 Disengagement of Forces Agreement, to cooperate fully with the operations of UNDOF and to ensure the security of, as well as unhindered and immediate access for, the United Nations personnel carrying out their mandate.

  1. The announcement seemed to communicate an ultimatum to foreign citizens and diplomats in Syria to evacuate within 72 hours… automatic gates
