Syrians could face jail for visiting Syria

September 9th, 2007 · No Comments · Uncategorized

A group of 330 Syrians living under occupation are to be charged by police for traveling to Syria.

They live in the Syrian Golan Heights, which is occupied by Israel. The group was allowed to cross the border into Syria. But now Israel says they didn’t have the proper permits – even though Israel allowed them to travel.

The group are all Druze clergymen who were visiting the tomb of Habil in Zabadani, near the Syria-Lebanon border.

One of them is a Syrian member of the Israeli parliament.

Israel has allowed the annual pilgrimage to happen every year for the past 19 years.
