Peacekeeping force to stay in Golan Heights

Peacekeepers of the UN Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) patrol the Golan Heights between Syria and Israel

A UN peacekeeping force monitoring the ceasefire between Israel and Syria in the Golan Heights is to remain in place for at least another six months.

On Wednesday, the Security Council voted to extend the mandate of the UN Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) until the end of June next year.

The mission was first established in 1974 and is one of the oldest UN peacekeeping forces.
