President Aquino wants detailed report on Golan Heights incident  
 

President Benigno S. Aquino III wants a comprehensive report on last week’s incident in the Golan Heights that will serve as the basis for future deployments of Filipino peacekeepers, a Palace official has said.
 
The Filipino peacekeepers will stay in the Golan Heights until they complete their tour of duty next month, Secretary Herminio Coloma, Jr. of the Presidential Communications Operations Office said in a press briefing in Malacañang on Tuesday.
 
"The Philippines is committed to fulfill its commitment to the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force or UNDOF," he said.
 
He said the President has instructed the Department of National Defense and the Armed Forces of the Philippines to prepare a report on the events of last week as a guide for future policies and actions in similar situations.
 
Some observers have demanded that the UNDOF commander in the Golan Heights be investigated for putting the lives of the Filipino peacekeepers in danger.
 
Coloma said this is why the President had asked for the report so that there will be a clearer perspective.
 
The President has expressed his satisfaction and has commended the Filipino peacekeepers who were courageous and determined in the face of the Syrian rebel attack, Coloma said.
