Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 6, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 28 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, June 6, 1974 Canadians set to patrol Canadian troops who form a part of the United Nations Disengagement Ob- server Force (UNDOF) rest in jeep after arriving at bivouac site near Quneitra in the Golan Heights Wednesday. The UNDOF moved rapidly into the buffer zone between Israel and Syria along the Golan Heights after the signing of the military plan for withdrawal from the front by both Syria and Israel. Canada thrust into new peace role UNITED NATIONS (CP) The plan for disengagement of the Israeli and Syrian armies on the Golan Heights on the border between the two coun- tries has had the effect of thrusting Canadian troops into yet another official peace- keeping operation. The men for the UN's Golan Heights force are being drawn from the original UN Emer- gency Force (UNEF) separa- ting the Israeli and Egyptian armies in the Suez sector. But the similarity ends there and UN diplomats regard the set- ting up of a buffer zone on the Golan Heights as a separate and distinct operation. Even the name is different. The new force is known as the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force The principle of a buffer force to keep the two sides apart re- mains the same. When the UN Security Council set up the emergency force last fall, following the Arab-Israeli ceasefire, it did so with the idea that UNEF eventually would stand guard on both the Egyptian and Syrian fronts. With that in mind, the council authorized establishment of a force, somewhat larger than would be needed for the Is- raeli-Egyptian frontier alone. SEPARATION INSISTED But the hard-bargaining Syrians, in the long and tortuous negotiations with U.S. State Secretary Henry Kissinger, balked and insisted that if their land is to be occupied by UN troops, the force should be separate and distinct from UNEF. So the UNDOF came into being and the Cana- dians, who will contribute to that force 150 men from their UNEF contingent, now are moving into what is officially their fourth current UN peacekeeping assignment. In addition to more than men in UNEF, Canada also has approximately 485 men in the UN peacekeeping establishment in Cyprus and others in UN observation teams in Kashmir and in UNTSO-the UN Truce Ob- servation Organization in the Middle East. The UNTSO men will link up with the UNDOF contingents on the Golan Heights to keep the peace there. Canadians already are deeply involved in the UNDOF operation, even though the separation plan has only just been signed by Israeli and Syrian military men. Canadian troops are already in Damascus, the Syrian capi- tal, and on the Golan Heights, which is to be the site of the neutral buffer zone to be pa- trolled by UN soldiers. The zone wjll vary in width from one Urfour miles. Canadian Buffalo aircraft, manned by Canadian pilots and air crews and assigned to the UN, are ferrying UNEF troops and technicians from the Suez zone area to the Syrian-Israeli front.
