Security Council slams attacks on UN peacekeepers in Golan Heights


08:37, June 07, 2013

UNITED NATIONS, June 6 (Xinhua) -- The UN Security Council on Thursday voiced its strong condemnation of "the intense fighting" in the separation area between Israel and Syria, including the attack leading to injuries of two UN peacekeepers on the Golan Heights.

"The members of the Security Council strongly condemned intense fighting in the Area of Separation, including the attack which led to injuries suffered by two UNDOF peacekeepers on June 6," the 15-nation UN body said in a press statement issued here.

UNDOF stands for the UN Disengagement Observer Force, which monitors the 1974 disengagement accord between Syria and Israel after their 1973 war.

"The members of the Security Council urged full respect of the disengagement agreement of 31 May 1974," the statement said.

Since last November, UNDOF has had its peacekeepers seized by armed groups, its observation posts attacked and looted, and its freedom of movement curtailed.
