Turkey - SMART

The deputy commander of the Russian forces in Syria, Sergey Koralenko, said that the area of disengagement between Syria and Israel in the occupied Golan is now free of heavy weapons in full.

Koralenko said that the Russian military police confiscated large quantities of weapons and ammunition during its work in the area, which has remarkably improved. He stressed that the area is now free of heavy weapons.

Koralenko noted that the Russian military police is still operating, and a few small warehouses of light weapons remain. He added that they would continue to deploy joint patrols with the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force.

The Russian official also said that the Syrian demining experts, who were trained by Russian forces, are ready to begin demining from the area. The Russian military engineers will also provide the necessary support for them.

Earlier, the Russian Defense Ministry said that it deployed military patrols on the borderline with the occupied Golan Heights, accompanied by UN peacekeepers. The Ministry added that it intends to establish eight temporary observation bases and will hand them over to the Syrian government later.

On May 31, 1974, Israel and the Syrian government signed the Disengagement Agreement,  under the auspices of the U.N and in the presence of representatives of the United States and the Soviet Union. A demilitarized zone, 20 kilometers deep, was established on both sides, under U.N forces monitoring. The Syrian government was also prevented from deploying SAM anti-aircraft missiles at a depth of 25 kilometers.
