Syrian government retakes Golan Heights frontier with Israel

BEIRUT -- The Syrian government regained control of the frontier with the Israeli Golan Heights for the first time in seven years on Monday, after Islamic State-linked militants gave up their last pocket of territory in the area.


The breakthrough against the militants, reported by state media and an opposition-linked war monitoring group, capped a six-week-long campaign to retake the southwest corner of the country.
