Hundreds of Druze Israelis took part in an annual rally on Friday demanding the return of the Golan Heights to Syrian control.

The rally took place in Majdal Shams on the Golan Heights, which stands at the heart of a long-standing conflict between Israel and Syria.

The rally marked the 33rd anniversary of Israel's annexation of the strategic plateau which it captured in the 1967 Six-Day War.
