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.

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.
