A United Nations soldier looks at smoke on the Israeli-controlled side of the line dividing the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights from Syria following fighting near the Quneitra border crossing August 27, 2014. Al Qaeda's Syria wing Nusra Front and other Islamist fighters have taken control of the border crossing, a group monitoring the Syrian conflict said on Wednesday. The fighters captured the Quneitra post on the Syrian side from forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad after fierce clashes, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said. The crossing is monitored by the United Nations, which oversees traffic between the two enemy countries but the distance between the two warring adversaries' posts is some 200 meters (yards). During the fighting, a stray bullet wounded an Israeli soldier in the Golan Heights and Israel responded with artillery fire at two Syrian army positions, the Israeli military said. It was the latest spillover of violence from the three-year conflict. REUTERS/Ronen Zvulun (MILITARY CONFLICT) less
