Clashes erupted on Saturday between a group of Philippine peacekeepers trapped in the Golan Heights and Islamist militants who were surrounding their position, the defense chief of the Philippines said.

About 40 Philippine troops manning one of two camps on the Syrian side of the frontier came under attack, Voltaire Gazmin told reporters.

Another defense official said all the Philippine troops were safe.
