Fiji says captured peacekeepers moved from UN territory

European members of the UN Disengagement Observer Force in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights keep watch on the Syrian side on August 29, 2014 after rebel fighters took control of the Quneitra border crossingFiji military officials confirmed Saturday they no longer know the whereabouts of 44 peacekeepers captured by Al-Qaeda-linked Syrian rebels in the Golan Heights. The Fijians were captured on Wednesday when armed Syrian rebels linked to the Al-Qaeda affiliate Al-Nusra Front, stormed a Golan Heights crossing. The soldiers are serving in the UN Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) stationed in a buffer zone to monitor a ceasefire between Syria and Israel since 1974.
