  • Description

    European and Arab parliamentary delegates visited the ruined city of Kuneitra in Syria's Golan Heights on Thursday (12 September). They inspected the damage to the city -- damage which reduced the fifteen-thousand-population ancient Golan capital to virtual ruins -- which both Syrians and Israelis claimed was inflicted by the other side.l The city was captured by the Israelis during last year's October war, and handed back to the Syrians as part of the disengagement agreement between the two countries. Syria said the Israelis destroyed it in revenge as they were withdrawing, and Israeli military authorities claimed the damage was caused by Syrian artillery shelling while the Israelis were holding the city.
