Syrian troops advance near Golan Heights city
Syrian state TV says government forces have captured two rebel-held areas on the edge of the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

 

The report, citing a military official, says troops and pro-government gunmen captured Saturday the areas of Rasm al-Hour and Rasm al-Sad, south of the town of Quneitra. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory For Human Rights confirmed troops were on the offensive, adding that the air force was taking part in the attack. (AP)
