20 UN peacekeepers taken hostage by Syrian rebels in Golan Heights


rt.com

Syrian rebels have seized twenty UN peacekeepers in the Golan Heights on the border between Syria and Israel. The United Nations Security Council demands the convoy’s immediate release.

A young fighter saying he was from the "Martyrs of Yarmouk" said the peacekeepers would not be set free until Syrian government forces withdrew from the village of Jamlah, a mile east of the ceasefire link with the Israeli-occupied Golan, Reuters reports.

"If no withdrawal is made within 24 hours we will treat them as prisoners," he said, claiming the UN forces had collaborated with Syrian government

These rebels are the people that the West is providing aid to in various ways including but not limited to weapons and intelligence. These "freedom fighters" have a lot of blood on their hands and this is just another indicator of what we are dealing with.

This makes all those "Leaders" from other nations who supported these clowns look even more ridiculous.

I speak to many Syrians locally and they have mixed reactions to this situation, and I do hear stories from people who have family there currently and even though Assad is a power hungry dictator, they much rather him than these monsters.

If the UN took Assad's forces side, then it probably means the rebels were up to their old tricks.

Here is a video of the UN vehicles they now also have in their possession,

Doesn't the UN "support" the rebels? Correct me if I'm wrong there, been outta the loop with Syria as of late. But last I thought they "supported" the rebels...?

I try to keep track of what's going on over there but it's all lies that we are told. Don't feel bad, I am confused too and the only thing I am confident of is that the people who funded these rebels are causing people to wake up to the reality of fake wars and foreign intervention and in my opinion most people are no longer easily fooled.

But yes, it's ironic that the Western Backed UN is being held hostage by their own demon child which they created to forward this long planned regime change.

Maybe we can increase their funding?

And yes, we are bound to encounter some people who will try and justify this and blame it on Assad.

Hey Corruption!

I love your posts and just wanted to say, I wasn't trying to be a smart ass. But in the past, I showed proof from the CFR website where they admitted that Al Quada was helping the Syrian rebels, and YET the shills came out in force spouting the globalist talking points??????

That was precisely my thoughts as well. What really got me is the irony of the situation.

I try to keep up as well, but it's getting soo messy over there I'm starting to lose track of everything... Which is prolly exactly what the gov't wants...

Just as i've said, they're terrorists...and now my Government want to send these terrorists supplies and equipment...you couldn't make it up.

Sending aid for displaced Civilians is a noble worthy effort, and is to be commended and encouraged.

However, sending comfort and aid to the stated enemy in the 'war on terror' isn't. And is in fact, criminal and carries hefty penalties...I hope William Hague has thought about the implications of setting Syria up for a fall by supporting Car bombers and Hostage takers...aka terrorists.

I think a rethink is in order Foreign Secretary?

I knew the rebels were bad people.

NATO supposedly saved their asses I'm lybia and half the fighters or freedom fighters are Libyan.

And I believe some could even be al quida

No worries, I didn't think you were being a smart ass


You are right though, I have pointed out Western Support for Al-Qaeda by certain organizations including the CFR but some people are stuck on their beliefs and refuse to accept the obvious evidence of what is going on with these boogeymen they create or at the very least support.

This sounds pretty bogus to me. It makes precisely no sense at this stage, no matter what the rebels thought the UN were doing, for them to capture twenty of them.

They know that the continued existence of the rebellion, though very well maintained considering the lack of support it has had up till recently, relies on good will from other nations. Taking peacekeepers hostage will not achieve any of thier stated goals.

These terrorists are enemies of America and the UN. Any American acting to aid these terrorists are GUILTY OF TREASON.

Obama, Kerry, McCain ect are guilty of treason.

What are the Penalties for Treason?

Your right AND wrong!

You see the laws were created by our Feudalist masters. They apply to us and not them! In a truely free society and country as most US citizens believe they live in, these laws WOULD APPLY, to the those who wrote them!.....

I'm not sure if it's bogus, it's being reported by various news sites.

As for it making sense, it just doesn't...as you mentioned. But a lot of what has gone on over there is completely out of the twilight zone so nothing surprises me anymore.

I find it funny that days after Assad said the U.K. was arming the rebels that Hague says what he said.Bullet proof vests,yeah right and the rest.Britain has had its grubby little paws in the rebels since the start.

I was just thinking. Maybe the rebels think they can get something out of this deal by having hostages. Considering they are "backed by the west".

Maybe they will negotiate for, ammo, weapons, food ect. Figuring that they won't get attacked/raided from spec ops because they are west backed...

Just a thought with my conspiracy mind.

It looks like the rebels who took the UN members "hostage" aren't part of the main rebel group.

They claim to have taken them to protect them from the Syrian army shelling, but later admitted that it was in the hope that the Syrian army would stop firing at them (the rebels).

They also claim that the UN staff are their guests, not their prisoners (yeah, right).

The main rebel leaders (who the west are backing) have condemned the actions of this small group and have said they will do everything they can to free them.

As for the UK supplying the rebels with equipment, I am disgusted that our leaders would do such a thing, although not surprised.

EDIT: Sorry, forgot to add source


The Martyrs of Yarmouk group told the BBC they had taken the observers to stop Syrian troops from shelling them.

The UN mission in the Golan Heights is sending a team to assess the situation and negotiate the observers' release.



Meanwhile, the Free Syrian Army (FSA) - the main rebel fighting force - condemned the seizure of the UN observers.

FSA leader Gen Salim Idriss told the BBC's Newshour programme he would "do everything what I can to liberate them".

Sounds like Israel stirring the pot and trying to bring the fight to its borders, so it can intervene.. publicly instead of covertly.
