In my capacity as Minister with Responsibility for Defence, I regularly update the Taoiseach on a range of Defence related issues.

The Taoiseach was kept fully informed on developments on the Golan Heights last week, where shelling and rocket attacks were reported.  All Irish Defence Forces personnel were reported safe and accounted for in their deployment with UNDOF following the incident. The situation in the Golan Heights is being closely monitored and the Taoiseach will continue to be kept  fully updated on any developments in the area.

Question No. 59 answered with Question No. 52.
