Golan's Druze divided over Syria unrest

Uprising against Bashar al-Assad polarises community that has lived under Israeli rule for more than 40 years.

    The Druze community in the Golan Heights still consider themselves Syrian, even though Israelis have occupied their land for more than four decades.

    They have been supporting the Syrian government for years, but as the conflict between forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad and rebels continues to intensify, divisions are appearing among them.
