Croatia to quit UN Golan force after reports of arms shipments

Croatia will pull its soldiers out of the UN peace force in the Golan Heights as a precautionary step, the government said on Thursday, after media reports that Croatian arms were being sent to Syrian rebels.

 

The Croatian government denied the reports and said it had never sold or donated weapons to the rebels, but Prime Minister Zoran Milanovic said the damage was already done."We can deny over and over again, but everyone has already read these reports and our soldiers are no longer safe." he told a cabinet meeting.
