Civilians suffer in battle for Syria's Golan

Residents along Israel border say despite taking refuge in "ceasefire zone", they still face government bombardment.

    Syrians living inside a buffer zone along the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights are increasingly being caught up in the country’s civil war.

    UN observers were removed from the Syrian side of the demarcation line in September when rebel fighters advanced. But civilians say despite taking refuge in the so-called ceasefire zone, they are still coming under regular bombardment by Syrian government forces.
