Flag_of_the_MFOThe Multinational Force and Observers (MFO) is an international peacekeeping force overseeing the terms of the peace treaty between Egypt and Israel. This is the mission patch worn on the shoulder.

The Multinational Force and Observers Medal is an international military decoration which was first created on March 24, 1982. The medal was established under the authority of the Director-General of the Multinational Force and Observers (MFO) which were established to monitor a neutral ceasefire zone, between Egypt and Israel, as the result of the Yom Kippur War of 1973.

The MFO is not a UN mission, but rather a multi-national force created by the annex to the Israeli-Egyptian Peace Treaty.
