Unknown terrorists kidnapped a United Nations Interim Forces in Lebanon (UNIFIL) legal adviser on February 7 from an outpost near the border between the Golan Heights and Syria, the Arabic channel of Sky News reported Monday night.

The report has not been verified, and there are no details concerning who kidnapped the victim, Carl Kampo from Austria, and where he was taken. A media outlet in Lebanon and affiliated with Hizbullah also reported the kidnapping.

Syrian President Bashar Assad’s forces have lost control of several villages near the Israeli border. Rebels have taken over some of the towns, and the IDF has learned that international terrorists also have infiltrated and are preparing to carry out a large-scale terrorist attack.

The IDF recently replaced reservists with regular army elite troops because of the potential for attacks, the website of Yediot Acharonot reported.

The United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon, or UNIFIL, was created by the United Nations, with the adoption of Security Council Resolution 425 and 426 on 19 March 1978, to confirm Israeli withdrawal from Lebanon which Israel had invaded five days prior, restore international peace and security, and help the Government of Lebanon restore its effective authority in the area.

The first UNIFIL troops were deployed in the area on 23 March 1978; these troops were reassigned from other UN peacekeeping operations in the area (namely the United Nations Emergency Force and the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force Zone).
