The Quneitra border crossing between Syria and Israeli occupied Golan Heights is ready for opening in the Arab republic, Lt. Gen. Sergei Kuralenko, the deputy commander of the Russian forces in Syria.
Russian born Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said that the Jewish state was also ready to open the Quneitra checkpoint.
The border crossing is ready for opening and to start operating. This was preceded by significant work carried out by the armed forces of the Syrian Arab Republic with the assistance of the Russian Aerospace Forces.
The conditions for the resumption of the checkpoint’s work were created after the Syrian government forces regained control over Syria’s southern areas and the UN peace keepers returned to the line of separation with Israeli occupied Golan Heights.
In 1967, Israel occupied the Syrian Golan Heights in order to control the Jordan River fresh water flow leading to the Sea of Galilee.
