The IDF Sunday closed the Quneitra border crossing area as military zone due to heavy exchanges of fire raging between Syrian troops and rebel in the Syrian sector of the Golan enclave in the past few days.  The Israel army has taken this precaution to keep local farmers out of range of stray bullets from the Syrian battles. DEBKAfile reports that the Syrian army is fighting to capture key positions around the Golan town of Quneitra which rebel forces have occupied since last month.
