According to a report earlier in the week by UN chief Ban Ki-moon, unarmed UN observers have been threatened, and have had to provide medical treatment to government forces who clashed with Syrian rebels in the demilitarized zone, AFP reported.

The report follows the injury of four Austrian members of the UN Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) who were injured on the way to Damascus last week, Israel Radio reported.

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.
