7 March 2013 - Kidnapping of 21 UNDOF peacekeepers in Golan Heights

Statement by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs Spokesperson

France strongly condemns the kidnapping of 21 UNDOF (United Nations Disengagement Observer Force) peacekeepers in Golan Heights between Syria and Israel.

France demands their immediate and unconditional release and urges all parties to fully cooperate with UNDOF. Any obstruction to UNDOF’s action or any act that puts its staff at risk is unacceptable.

France reaffirms its full support for UNDOF. It reaffirms that UN operations are carried out by neutral and impartial peacekeeping forces and should not in any way be attacked during a conflict.
