Footage released on Sunday, shows two Syrians arriving at the Quneitra crossing after they were released by Israel following Russia’s intervention.

Zidan al-Tawil and Ahmad Khamis were seen getting out of an ambulance at the crossing in the Syrian Golan Heights. Khamis later pushed the wheelchair-bound al-Tawil away.

The release reportedly came after Moscow helped Damascus repatriate the remains and personal affairs of Zachary Baumel, an Israeli soldier killed during the 1982 war in Lebanon.
