Syrian Regime Captures Strategic Hill Overlooking Golan Heights

Government forces make new gains in southwestern Syria Monitor

Wednesday's attacks focused on towns and villages surrounding Nawa, making the road in and out of it deadly, according to a local activist who goes by the name Selma Mohammed. "Get a move on".

On Tuesday, troops loyal to Bashar al-Assad launched an intense bombing campaign on the densely populated southern town of Nawa, killing at least 14 people and wounding more than 100, according to activists and rescuers. Israel has refused to grant asylum to citizens of Syria, with which it is technically at war.

Trump's call for an immediate and complete withdrawal of American troops from the region came even as top U.S. officials stressed the need to stay for the long term. That's not our job.

Israel seized 1,200 square kilometres (460 square miles) of the Golan from Syria in 1967 and later annexed it, in a move never recognised internationally. The deal, concluded after the 1973 Middle East war, created a buffer zone patrolled by the U.N. Disengagement and Observer Force.

The Syrians who approached the fence stopped some 200 meters (yards) away.

SANA claims that for several years the terrorist group, aiming the destruction of the Syrian state, received from Israel's military aid, logistical support and intelligence.

The crowd, which included women and children, then walked back slowly toward the refugee encampment. Some stopped mid-way and waved white cloths in the direction of the Israeli frontier.

An Israeli officer, speaking to Reuters on condition of anonymity, said such processions toward the fence had happened before: "It's their way of signaling they need new supplies".

The agreement follows another deal that saw thousands of residents evacuated Thursday morning from two pro-regime towns in northern Syria long besieged by hardline rebels. The United Nations said last week up to 160,000 Syrians had fled to Quneitra province, some close to the Golan.

Syrian state TV broadcast from a hilltop captured from rebels on Monday and overlooking the Golan frontier. Government fighters waved rifles and held aloft pictures of Assad as they celebrated.

In a briefing with Israeli reporters, he said Israel had not had a problem "with the Assad regime for 40 years", noting that "not one bullet was sacked on the Golan Heights" in that time.

Meanwhile, Syria reportedly has agreed not to deploy its forces or equipment in the demilitarized zone with Israel. Israel has been trying to rally Russian Federation to support removing Iranian-backed militias as far as possible from the border region on the Golan Heights.

The statement came a day before President Donald Trump and Russia's Vladimir Putin are to meet in Finland.

Rebels said Russian and Syrian jets intensively bombed a string of rebel-held towns in Quneitra to force them to surrender in a strategy that offers rebels the choice of either evacuating to opposition-held areas or being recruited into state-run militias.

"The HTS is now asking the regime to release a new similar number", said Observatory director Abdel Rahman.
