Transition in Syria after Bashar al-Assad will be impossible without constructive international support. From outsiders, Syria will need these five key things:
Yom Kippur War: 40 years ago, an American teen kibbutz volunteer in Israel dived into a bunker as the three-week war erupted around her. Dizzy with fear but thrilled, in a voyeuristic way, to be at the center of world events, she didn't know that war would become a dominant theme of her future.
An Israeli engineering student gathered 30 people from his Golan Heights kibbutz to construct a giant peace sign on the de-facto Israel-Syria border.
The Syrian Army and rebels battled for control of Syria's crossing into the Golan Heights. The fighting lasted for seven hours and sent UN peacekeepers scrambling.
Today's incident marks the first time that Syria has admitted breaching the border with Israel since the civil war began.
