Hundreds of Syrian refugees approached Israel's northern border on Tuesday waving white flags and asking to enter the country.
The shelling also targeted various rebel-held villages in Quneitra province located only a few kilometres from the Israel border where tens of thousands of people had taken shelter from the offensive.

Many of those trapped by the Syrian government's advances were hoping for relief from Israel, or some sort of a safe zone there, said Areej Ghabash, a local health worker in Quneitra.
