On Thursday (August 4), hundreds of Druze residents of the Golan Heights crossed from Israel into Syria via the Quneitra Crossing to return to Syrian educational institutions for the fall semester.

During the summer, the Druze college students visited their families in Israel.

The crossing was coordinated by officials from the Defense Ministry, the IDF (Zahal)’s Northern Command and the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF).
