The fighters, who have vowed to "liberate" the area, captured the Quneitra post on the Syrian side from forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad after fierce clashes, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said. The organisation gathers information from all sides in the Syrian war #facebook #India #Syria #France #Russia #Israel #Italy #Argentina #United Kingdom #Mexico
