Both the Israel and the Syrian forces have fulfilled provisions of their armistice agreement, entailing the destruction of fortifications and withdrawal of troops beyond newly demarcated lines and the demilitarization of a central front strip, the Syrian and Israel delegates announced yesterday at a meeting of the mired armistice commission held in Rosh Pina. This concludes an important phase of the agreement between the countries.
