The Syrian military is reportedly preparing to attempt to retake the Quneitra border crossing, which was recently seized by rebel forces.

Due to concerns about a spillover from the fighting in Syria, the Israel Defense Forces has declared parts of the border region a closed military zone. Farmers have reportedly been told to stay away from fields next to the border fence in some areas.
