Slovakia to withdraw from the Golan Heights Mission

Slovakia is pulling its peacekeepers out of the UNDOF (Disengagement Observer Force) Mission in the Golan Heights, on the border between Israel and Syria. In presence of Slovak Defence Minister Jaroslav Baška, a Croatian contingent will take over the Slovak troops’ roles in the UNDOF mission. During the ceremonial line-up, a commemorative plague will be unveiled marking ten years of the Slovak contingent’s mission in the Golan Heights. Since 1998, over 1,000 Slovak soldiers have served as part of the mission. SITA
