Syrian families divided by Golan Heights fence

Israeli forces are continuing the construction of a fence started earlier this year to separate the occupied Golan Heights from Syrian territories.

Israel says the barrier is aimed at preventing any infiltration by Palestinians or Syrians into Israeli lands.

However, Syrian residents say the fence separates them from their families and mother land.
