Syria: Army recaptures Quneitra border crossing in Golan Heights


A day after Syrian rebels lost the strategic and symbolic town of Qusair to the Syrian army, they thought they had gained control of the Quneitra crossing into the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights Thursday.

Their victory, however, was short-lived as Israeli security sources said Syrian troops took back the crossing after heavy fighting.

Earlier, the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and a spokesman for the Austrian Defense Ministry reported that rebels had taken the crossing, according to Reuters.

Israeli citizens have been ordered to stay away from the border fence area by authorities as fighting continues in the UN-patrolled demilitarized zone. The crossing is normally operated by the UN Disengagement Observer Force.
