Syria regime raises flag on frontier with Israel-occupied Golan: Monitor

AFP , Thursday 26 Jul 2018

Syrian government forces raised the country's two-star flag on the frontier with the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights on Thursday, a monitor said, around four years after losing control of the area.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said regime forces had entered the buffer zone separating Syrian territory from the Israeli-occupied Golan and hoisted the flag there.

Al-Watan, a daily newspaper close to the government, reported that "army troops raised the Syrian flag above the Quneitra crossing, a few dozen metres from enemy Israeli troops."
