“Certain countries are concerned,” Internet portal Cham Press has cited Mr. Ladsous as saying.
“We will reinforce security, most notably with armored vehicles and we plan to send more political advisers to analyze the situation on the ground,” he said.
According to the UN peacekeeping chief, “the situation in Syria sparked a cascade of insecurity which has had consequences highlighted by the presence of armed groups belonging to the Syrian opposition in the disengagement zones.” He added the insecurity had spilled over into the so-called “area of separation,” which is the Golan Heights.
Concerns over security of peacekeeping forces rose after two Austrian troops were wounded in an attack on the UN convoy near Damascus.
