U.N. Peacekeepers Wounded by Syrian Mortars

Mortar bombs launched from Syria wounded two United Nations peacekeepers in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights on Monday, in what appeared to be stray fire from Syrian civil war fighting. A military spokeswoman said the peacekeepers were taken for treatment at an Israeli hospital and that she had no further details on their condition or nationality. The U.N. mission known as UNDOF - with about 800 soldiers from Fiji, India, Ireland, Nepal, and the Netherlands - was established in 1974.
