Even in Peace Time Security Won't Depend on Int'l Force

Strategic Affairs and Intelligence Minister Yuval Steinitz expressed regret, Thursday evening, at the Austrian government's decision to pull its soldiers out of the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force in the Golan Heights.

Doctor Steinitz said, "The lesson should be clear - even in the context of a peace treaty, Israel is not content to place its security in the hands of international forces rather than the presence of the soldiers of the Israel Defense Forces."
