Syrian Rebels Take UN Peacekeepers Hostage
Less than a week after the Obama administration pledged to supply non-lethal aid to the Syrian resistance, Syrian rebels have taken twenty UN peacekeeper hostage in the Golan Heights. The latter is disputed territory claimed by both Israel and Syria, following Isreal’s occupation of the territory during the 1973 Arab-Israeli war.
Based on a video they posted on YouTube, the rebels are threatening to hold the peacekeepers prisoner until the US, UN and Security Council meet their demands for the forcible withdrawal of Syrian troops from their village.
