VIENNA - Austria will withdraw its peacekeepers from the UN monitoring force on the Golan Heights given worsening fighting between Syrian government forces and rebels, the government said on Thursday.

Austrians account for about 380 of the 1,000-strong UN force monitoring a ceasefire between Syria and Israel and their departure will deal a serious blow to the mission.
