In recent weeks, Syrian president's troops, Bashar al-Assad, are advancing country's south West Reconquest. The fighting in provinces of Quneitra and Daraa- first border with Golan Heights occupied by Israel in 1,967 and both bordering on Jordan-have intensified so much that, according to Syrian Observatory of Human Rights, in last 24 hours more than 20,000 civilians would have fled areas controlled by self-proclaimed Islamic State (ISIS) in that region and anor 10,000 would still be trapped between two fires in Yarmuk River basin, still controlled by Islamists.

According to official Hebrew data, at least 600 children would have been treated in Israeli institutions.
