Tel Aviv (dpa) - Israel reopened the Quneitra crossing with Syria on Monday to United Nations observer forces, an Israeli army spokesman said.

The Quneitra crossing, located in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, was shuttered in August 2014 amid fierce fighting between the Syrian government and rebel groups there.

The Syrian government retook control over the town of Quinetra from Syrian rebels over the summer and UNDOF, a United Nations peacekeeping force, restarted patrols in the area in August.

The crossing was mainly used for UNDOF observer forces and for the Golan Height‘s Druze ethnic minority to cross into Syria.

A buffer zone was established between the Israeli-controlled Golan Heights and Syria in 1974 after the 1973 Arab-Israeli war.
