UN on peacekeeping force in Golan

“Also Wednesday, the UN Security Council called on the Syrian government and rebel fighters to ensure the safety and freedom of movement of the UN peacekeeping force that has monitored a cease-fire line between Israel and Syria for nearly four decades.

Council members underscored the increased risk the conflict poses to UN personnel, highlighted by the recent hostage-taking of 21 peacekeepers by armed opposition elements. There has also been firing directed at UN personnel and facilities, and the carjacking of UN vehicles.”
