THE United Nations has received assurances from credible sources the 44 Fijian peacekeepers from the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) who were taken from their position on Thursday morning are safe and in good health.

A statement issued yesterday said the UNDOF had not yet had direct contact with the captured peacekeepers.

"UNDOF has been informed that the intention behind those holding the peacekeepers was to remove them from an active battlefield to a safe area for their own protection.

"UNDOF has been in regular contact with the peacekeepers who are confined in two UNDOF positions (68 and 69) and can confirm they have not been harmed and are in good health."
