UN condemns fighting by Syria and rebels in Golan Heights

The UN Security Council is condemning the fighting and use of heavy weapons by Syrian armed forces and opposition fighters in the area that has separated Syrian and Israel forces since 1974.

A resolution co-sponsored by Russia and the United States and adopted unanimously by the council on Monday calls on parties to the Syrian conflict to halt all military action in the area of separation. It warns that military activities in the zone can escalate Syrian-Israeli tensions. The resolution extends the mandate of the 750-strong peacekeeping force on the Golan Heights until Dec. 31.
