U.N. peacekeeping mission along Syrian-Israeli border extended
The United Nations Security Council voted unanimously Monday to extend the U.N. peacekeeping mission along the Israeli-Syrian border.
The 15-nation council adopted a resolution to renew the mandate of the more than 1,000-strong U.N. Disengagement Observer Force for six months until June 30.
The force was set up in 1974, following the 1973 October war, to monitor the disengagement of Israeli and Syrian forces in the Golan Heights. (Albawaba.com)
