The Mixed Armistice Commissions (MAC) consists of an equal number of members designated by each party to the armistice agreements between Israel and the Arab States. Under the chairmanship of the Chief of Staff of the UN Truce Supervision Organization (UNTSO) or a senior UN Military Observer, they supervise the execution of these agreements. A corps of UN Military Observers (UNMO) is available to assist in investigating any complaints.
