Breaking: Two Syrian prisoners released in Israel arrive in Syria (video)

Two Syrian prisoners who were released by Israel on Sunday have arrived in Syria through the crossing with occupied Golan Heights in Quneitra province.

Zidan al-Taweel and Ahmad Khamis reached the crossing between the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights and the Quneitra province in southern Syria, state news agency SANA reported.

Khamis was jailed in 2005 while Taweel was imprisoned in 2008.

Reports said that the release of the two prisoners will be followed by the release of more prisoners in Israeli jails, according to pro-government al-Watan newspaper.

The release of the two Syrians came after Russia handed over to Israel the remains of the Israeli soldier Zachary Baumel, who was declared missing during the 1982 six day war.
