Syrian bride Samar Khayal weeps before she crosses the Syrian-Israeli checkpoint at al-Quneitra city January 5, 2011. Samar Khayal, 26, got married with a man who lives in the occupied part of the Syrian Golan Heights. The Golan Heights is a strategic land and mountainous region at the southern end of Lebanon Mountains and remains a highly contested land striding the borders of Syria and Israel. Israel captured the Syrian Golan Heights following the 1967 Six-Day War and unilaterally annexed it in 1981. Damascus and Tel Aviv have been technically at war ever since. (Xinhua/Bassim)
