- United Nations Security Council Resolution 339
United Nations Security CouncilResolution 339 (S/RES/339) was adopted on 23 October 1973 in order to bring a cease firein the Yom Kippur Warwhere Resolution 338 two days before had failed. After Egyptian forces broke the terms of the cease fire, Israeli forces took advantage of this to make substantial military gains.
The resolution primarily reaffirmed the terms outlined in Resolution 338 (itself based on Resolution 242), returning the forces of both sides back to the position they held when the cease fire (338) came into effect, and a request from the
United Nations Secretary-Generalto undertake measures toward the placement of observers to supervise the cease fire.
