Syria's Permanent Representative to the UN Dr. Bashar al-Jaafari said that Syria insists on conducting a UN investigation of the role of Qatari intelligence agencies in the abduction of UN personnel in the occupied Syrian Golan.
In an interview with Russia's Novosti news agency on Monday, al-Jaafari said that a person from Doha used a Qatari phone number to contact the people who abducted UN personnel and explained to them how to act, where to go, what to say and what to do about the abductees.
He said that this information is confirmed by an email sent by a UN employee working in Damascus to the UN headquarters, and that this email was circulated on the highest level in the UN, including the Secretary-General.
Al-Jaafari regretted that there has been no reaction from the UN Secretary-General or his official representative after posing this very alarming issue in the statement he made at the UN on May 16th.
He noted that he discussed this issue with UN Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations Hervé Ladsous, who said that he doesn't know about it but promised an investigation, yet nothing happened.
Al-Jaafari said he is confident that Qatari intelligence agencies are deeply involved in manipulating the abduction of United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) personnel operating in Golan, asserting that terrorist groups present in the Golan receive instructions from Qatari intelligence and assist Israel.
