The prisoners were repatriated immediately after the signing of the agreement (June 1-6, 1974) and Israel withdrew from Mount Hermon and landlocked areas. The new demarcation line was completed on June 26, 1974. Contrary to what many thought, the withdrawal agreement between Israel and Syria not only lasted more than 45 years, but it came into force from its signing until today. This is the longest agreement Israel has ever reached with an Arab country. The withdrawal agreement (Hebrew:) is an agreement between Israel and Syria signed on 31 May 1974 which officially ended the Yom Kippur war and the period of exhaustion that followed on the Syrian front.  The agreement has decided that the two countries will maintain the ceasefire and immediately bring back prisoners of war on both sides. Then, it was said, Israel would withdraw from all the enclaves and the summit of the Hermon it occupied during the war, and an area of about 25 km2 around the city of Quneitra and other small territories occupied during the Six Day War. Finally, two divisions were established: Israeli (marked in blue) and Syrian (marked in red), including a 235 km2 buffer zone on the Syrian side.  In March 1975, Kissinger began a new cycle of shuttle diplomacy, which aimed to withdraw to Sinai. While the Israeli Prime Minister was hesitant to cede any territory in Sinai, Kissinger and President Ford put pressure on Israel by suspending arms deliveries. After meetings in Washington and Israel, Rabin agreed in August to extend the negotiations. The agreement signed on 4 September included the Israeli withdrawal of the Abu Rudei oil fields and the Mitla and Gidi passports, as well as the creation of a UN-supervised buffer zone. The agreement stipulated that Syrian civilians, forced to leave their homes in the buffer zone, would be able to join them, as they pledged to fight terrorist activities on the Golan Heights.
Both commitments were made as an oral commitment to the United States. The agreement was followed by the creation of the United Nations Zone for the Use of Observer Force Disturbances (UNDOF), which designated 1,043 soldiers to hijack the buffer zone.  Israel and Egypt signed the second withdrawal agreement (Sinai II) on 4 September 1975 in Geneva. U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, engaged in shuttle diplomacy, helped Israel and Egypt negotiate the first exit agreement after the Yom Kippur War in October 1973.
