It still appears, however, that the SRF is holding onto the border crossing. As I speculated yesterday, this may be in a move to not entice an Israeli response at this point in time. But, as you will see below, Nusra has released a picture of them hoisting their flag near the crossing. This could make Israel feel uneasy with al-Qaeda being so close to their claimed territory. Only time will tell, but it will be interesting to see how Israel reacts to this--especially since one of their soldiers was hurt yesterday and reports are emerging that forty UN peacekeepers are being held.
On Nusra's side, though, this could give them a boost in their fighting for dominance with the Islamic State. They are now incredibly close to striking distance with Israel and left unchecked, they could utilize this border crossing for easier access for attacks in Israel.
