Two injured in attack on Austrian UN peacekeepers in Syria
A convoy of Austrian UN peacekeepers came under fire near Damascus on Thursday, leaving two of the soldiers wounded, the Austrian Defence Ministry said, dpa reported.
The 170 soldiers travelling in the convoy belonged to the UN troops stationed on the Golan Heights to monitor the border between Syria and Israel. They were driving to the airport to fly to Austria.
Ministry spokesman Michael Bauer told dpa that it was unclear whether government forces or rebels fired the shots.
