Event

Israeli warplanes targeted a Syrian military position near Khan Arnabeh (Quneitra province) on Monday, May 27. According to the Israeli government, the Syrian military fired a surface-to-air missile at an Israeli Air Force plane as it flew over Israeli territory at approximately 21:00 (local time); the missile failed to hit the warplane.

Advice

Due to extremely poor security conditions, Western governments generally advise against all travel to Syria, with some banning travel to the country. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to any travel to Syria.
