The United States strongly condemns the detention of UN peacekeepers and ongoing violence targeting the UN Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) in the Golan Heights by non-state armed groups, including UN Security Council-designated terrorist group Al-Nusrah Front.
We demand the unconditional and immediate release of all UN peacekeepers and again call on all parties to refrain from threatening or endangering UNDOF forces and interfering in their mandated mission.
We reiterate our full support of UNDOF in maintaining the ceasefire in the Golan and our gratitude to the brave peacekeepers serving in the mission.
