Philippines to end Syria peacekeeping mission

Decision comes after a commander ordered Filipino troops to surrender to rebels in the Golan Heights last week.

    The United Nations says it supports the commander accused of putting Filipino troops in danger by ordering them to surrender to rebels in the Golan Heights.
     
    For the Philippine government, the diplomatic tension means it's time to put an end to its peacekeeping operations in Syria.
