Syria officially opens new border crossing with Lebanon




The Syrian and Lebanese governments officially opened the Jouseeh Crossing to the public on Thursday after spending several months repairing the area.

The border crossing was reopened, today, with the official ceremony attended by Syria’s Minister of Interior and the Governor of Homs.

The Jouseeh Crossing was closed four years ago when opposition forces took control of the Lebanese border.

However, since the recapture of this area by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Hezbollah, the governments of Lebanon and Syria have been able to repair the Jouseeh Crossing so that it could once again be used by the public.
