24-04-2008 Operational update for Occupied Golan.

The ICRC helps with the practical arrangements for weddings between Syrian Arab residents of the occupied Golan and their fiancé(e)s living in Syria proper. This includes obtaining security clearance for named wedding guests. The wedding ceremonies – which also present a rare occasion for separated family members to meet up, if only for an hour – take place under ICRC auspices in the demilitarized zone at Kuneitra crossing point. The ICRC has been providing this service for more than 20 years.
