Fighting rages on for strategically located city between Jordan and Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

Syrian rebels say they have captured a series of military checkpoints in Deraa, which would enable them to control who goes in and out of the southern city.

It is located in a sensitive area near the Jordanian border, with the nearby Golan Heights occupied by Israel.
