Background: "1949 Armistice Line" vs '67 Line

Background: "1949 Armistice Line" vs '67 Line

"The significance of the announcement by the Radio Damascus analyst that
Syria is demanding an Israeli withdrawal from the Golan Heights to the 1949
armistice line, is that it renews the controversy over the demilitarized
zones which clouded Syrian-Israeli relations before the Six Day War."

"Three different lines marked the boundary between Syria and Israel before
the Six Day War: the international border from the Mandate period, the
armistice line, and the deployment of forces line on 4 June 1967, from which
the Six Day War opened. The Israeli politicians who talk about a full
withdrawal from the Golan Heights such as ministers Shimon Peres, Yossi
Sarid, and Shulamit Aloni are proposing a withdrawal to the international
border, the easternmost of the three lines, and the best for Israel. The
armistice line is the westernmost, and the most comfortable for the Syrians;
the June 4 line passes between them, and leaves in Syrian hands areas they
seized control of by force during the 1950's. "
