Syrian regime forces retook the only crossing point along the ceasefire line after it was seized earlier by rebels, an Israeli security source said. The crossing is seen as strategically important because of its position in a demilitarised zone of the Golan Heights, most of which Israel seized from Syria in the 1967 Six-Day War.
