UN Security Council Resolutions: Resolution 235

(June 9, 1967)

On 8 June, Egypt had agreed to a cease-fire and, on that day, fighting had ended in Sinai, when Israeli forces reached the Suez Canal. On 9 June, Syria announced its acceptance of the previous cease-fire Resolutions but demanded a meeting of the Security Council to accuse Israel of violating the truce. On 9 June, the Council passed a third cease-fire Resolution which applied to the Syrian front. It was accepted by Israel and later by Syria. The cease-fire on the Golan Heights went into effect on 10 June at 1630 GMT.
