  • Description

    Syrian villagers have been returning to their homes a few miles inside the 1967 ceasefire line, shortly after Israeli forces captured the area in their counter-offensive against Syria. As the villagers straggled in on Monday (October 8th) waving white flags, the Israelis were turning a captured Soviet field-gun against Syrian positions ahead.

    The Syrian have left behind large amounts of military equipment, including trucks and jeeps. The Israelis have now advanced well into Syria and, on Tuesday (October 16th), were reported to be 23 miles (37 kilometres) from Damascus. But military observers consider it unlikely that they have the intention or the military capacity to take the capital.

    Syria announced on Monday (October 15th) that it had repulsed an Israeli attack after destroying 43 tanks.
