Syrian army and its allies take control of strategic hill overlooking Israeli-occupied Golan Heights


The Syrian army and its allies have taken control of a strategic hill overlooking the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights. According to Syrian State Television, the army had taken control of al-Haara hill in Quneitra province yesterday. It said the army had made territorial gains on the second day of an offensive to take back the last parts of southwest Syria that are in rebel hands and are close to the border with Israel.

The hilltop, which had a major anti-aircraft radar base that was part of elaborate Syrian army defences against Israel, fell into rebel hands in October 2014
