Islamist Nusra Front kidnaps UN peacekeepers on Golan Heights

Syrian rebels from the al-Nusra front in the Golan Heights have kidnapped 40 Philippine peacekeepers from the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force between Israel and Syria.
The al-Arabiya network reported that militants fighting with Jabhat al-Nusra, affiliated with al-Qaeda, kidnapped soldiers of the UN Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) in the Golan Heights. According to reports, those abducted include 40 soldiers of Philippine origin.
Meanwhile, Irish forces in the same group are reported to be hunkered down, but safe.
And this is really likely to convince other countries to send their troops to this area as 'peacekeeping forces'....

We are all very concerned for the well being of the Irish, a country that compensates for the unfortunate "Curse of the Irish" with its love for the State of Israel.
