PARIS - United Nations forces based inside Syria to monitor a longtime ceasefire between Syria and Israel will bring in armor to reinforce their security because of a threat posed by an influx of Syrian rebels, the UN peacekeeping chief said.

The UN force deployed after the 1973 Yom Kippur War, in which Syria failed to recapture the Golan Heights taken by Israel seven years before and later annexed by the Jewish state.
