  • Description

    King Faisal of Saudi Arabia on Wednesday (15 January) visited war-shattered Kuneitra, principal city of the Golan Heights, and condemned the Israelis for their "brutal and barbaric" actions. The Syrians have accused the Israelis of blowing up most of the houses in Kuneitra just before they withdrew from it last year.

    Surveying the debris, King Faisal declared that the Arabs "can recover their rights, and we hope that victory over our enemies will be achieved".

    The King was on the second day of his four-day state visit to Syria, the first by a Saudi monarch since the late 1950s. He was accompanied on the 30 mile trip to the town by Syria's President Hafez Al-Assad.

    Later on Wednesday, the two leaders completed their second round of talks, though details of negotiations were scanty. However, the King has stressed the importance of his visit for strengthening Arab solidarity, and expressed the hope that the two countries will find the will "to achieve victory against our enemies".
