At the request of the Syrian population of the Israeli-occupied Golan, the ICRC acts as a neutral intermediary between the Israeli and Syrian authorities. During the past four years the ICRC has enabled four brides to cross from Syria proper into the Golan Heights. On Thursday 3 November 2011, the gates at Kuneitra crossing opened and the ICRC facilitated the crossing of two of these Syrian women, who would be joining their new families in the Golan.
