Syrian rebels kidnap 20 UN soldiers

Syrian rebels calling themselves “Martyrs of Yarmouk” kidnapped 20 United Nations observers stationed at the Golan Heights border and are demanding that Syrian President Bashar Assad’s soldiers withdraw from the nearby village of Jamla.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights posted a video , which said it received it from rebels, showing men standing next to vehicles with the letters UN written on them. The observers were accused of collaborating with Assad against the rebels.

One of the men was in civilian clothes and said, “If no withdrawal is made within 24 hours we will treat them as prisoners,”  he said.

The Jamla village and its surrounding areas have witnessed violent clashes in the past couple of days, and rebel fighters from several factions took hold of the rebels’ mortar division and several checkpoints in Jamla, according to the Observatory.

UN deputy spokesman Eduardo del Buey said the observers, who monitor the 1974  ceasefire between Israel and Syria, were on “a regular supply mission” when the armed men stopped them.

Heavy fighting in the area damaged the post last week  and the observers were evacuated to another location.

Last week, the United Nations admitted that one of its officials was kidnapped last month but gave no details, and it is not known where he was taken.

The United Nations condemned the kidnapping and demanded the release of the observers.

One Response to “Syrian Rebels Kidnap 20 UN Observers from Golan Border (Video)”

  1. These are the people were supporting? The whole world moves from trouble to trouble. Iran continues unwavering on it’s march in the development of nuclear weapons and Assad the dictator of Syria is still in power. Current intelligence seems uncertain of when Iran will get the bomb and Israel cannot afford to gamble with this. Assad of Syria looks like he may be preparing to use weapons of mass destruction against his own people and against near by nations as well and Gaza seems more like an opportunity for Hamas to reload than it does a cease fire. If this situation does not drastically change soon for the better, I believe the war in Isaiah Chapter 17 will likely take place. Damascus Syria would be destroyed. The worlds economy would likely collapse as a result and usher in a one world government movement. I wrote a small 6 page book that outlines what I believe the Bible states will take place soon. I don’t accept donations and it’s free. It’s a short read. I encourage you to have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next.
