The fighters“had succeeded in occupying all of the Syrian side” of the Golan Heights, forcing troops from the UN Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) to retreat.“The terrorists are now using United Nations cars, which hold the emblem of the United Nations forces in the Golan.

They are using the uniform of the UNDOF, the weapons of UNDOF, the positions of UNDOR to shell on the Syrian army as well as on the civilians in villages,”Jaafari told reporters.

The UN Security Council is scheduled to discuss the Golan Heights situation during a session on Wednesday.
