U.S. to Syria: Don't Violate the Ceasefire


The U.S. State Department called on the Syrian regime on Thursday to take care to avoid violating the ceasefire with Israel in the Golan Heights.

“We’ve been very clear about our concerns over regional instability caused by the crisis in Syria,” State Department Spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters, after a day of fighting between regime troops and rebels near the border of Israel. “This is of course another example of that, and we continue to call upon all parties to avoid any action that would jeopardize the long-held ceasefire between Israel and Syria.”
