UNITED NATIONS - The UN Security Council renewed for six months on Thursday a peacekeeping mission in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights monitoring a decades old truce between Israel and Syria that has been shaken by a spillover of violence from Syria's civil war.

The unanimously agreed resolution stresses the need for the peacekeepers, who currently just carry hand guns, to boost their protection. Diplomats said troops would likely now get equipment such as flak jackets, armored vehicles and machine guns.
