BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:50 P.M.) – The destruction of the Syrian Golan Heights city of Quneitra almost a month after its liberation from opposition forces can clearly be seen in footage filmed on Tuesday.
Quneitra was liberated by Syrian government forces in late July, along with a number of villages in the area. Opposition forces had taken the city back in 2014.
The video also shows an abandoned UN post in the demilitarised buffer zone between the Israeli-occupied and Syrian-controlled sections of the Golan Heights.
UNDOF personnel left their positions on the Golan Heights’ Syrian side in 2014 due to outbreaks of violence in the area.
On August 2, Russian military police secured UN mission access to the Golan Heights for the first time since the beginning of the conflict in Syria.
