Druze Gather in Israeli-Occupied Golan in Support of Syrian Government

Alwaght- Members of Druze minority community, residing in Israeli-Occupied Golan Heights, has gathered on Saturday along a fence separating them from the Syrian-controlled side to celebrate Syrian Army's successes in its war against foreign-backed militants and terrorists.

Carrying Syrian flags, portraits of President Bashar Assad, binoculars and megaphones, the Druze community in the village of Massade chanted loyalty to the Syrian government, with troops and civilians on the other side of the border shouting and waving back, Reuters reported.

The Druze are an Arab minority who practice an offshoot of Islam. The minority has been repeatedly subjected to ISIS terrorism since 2015, leading to protests by the Druze community from the Israeli-controlled portion of the Golan to protect their brothers on the other side of the artificial border from the violence. 

Local resident Emil Masoud told Reuters that the rally was meant to "celebrate the final stages of the war…and to celebrate with our people in Syria the final stage of victory."

The village of Massade, part of Syria's Quneitra District, has been under Israeli occupation since the Arab-Israeli War of 1967.

Israeli regime occupied 1,200 square kilometers of the 1,800 square-kilometer Golan Heights during the Six-Day War in 1967, and formally annexed it in 1981. The UN Security Council condemned the decision and called the move to impose Israeli "laws, jurisdiction and administration" over the territory "null and void and without international legal effect."

Last week, Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem called on the international community to compel Israeli regime to abide by UN Security Council resolutions, including the one on the Golan Heights, and  stressed Damascus' determination to fully liberate the Golan Heights, "just as we liberated southern Syria from terrorists."
