Syrian Conflict Spills Beyond Its Border to Golan Heights, Lebanon


The Syrian crisis spills beyond its borders again. Syrian forces fought off a rebel assault Thursday in a demilitarized zone of the Golan Heights, along the Syrian-Israeli border. About 1,000 UN peacekeepers have been stationed here -- monitoring a decades-old ceasefire between Syria and Israel. Austria said it will withdraw its nearly 400 peacekeepers, dealing a blow to the UN mission.
