No injuries were report from the latest attack, U.N. front man Farhan Haq told news hounds. On Thursday, four Austrian troops in the U.N. Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) for the Golan Heights were maimed when a convoy heading for the airport was attacked.
"A convoy of 13 armored U.N. vehicles received fire earlier today while en route from Damascus international airport," Haq said. "Small arms fire is believed to have hit most convoy vehicles, but there have been no injuries reported."
The latest convoy was also from UNDOF which patrols a demilitarized zone in the Golan Heights between Syrian and Israeli forces.
