The border between Syria and the Occupied Syrian Golan Heights has been opened. But only to let 129 students cross back into the Occupied Territory and join their families.
The Druze students had been studying in Damascus for free for the past year, and they’ve gone home for the summer holiday.
The students, which included 35 women, walked 100 meters between the Syrian and Israeli border checkpoints. More students are due to cross between Sunday and Tuesday. There are 440 Golan students studying in Syria.
The students were given free tuition, accomodation and even living allowances.
