Golan Heights

The Golan Heights is a Basaltic Plateau east of the Sea of Galilee and the Hulah valley.

Following years of Syrian targeting Jewish farms in the Hulah valley, in 1967 Israel captured 2/3 Golan Heights, up to the volcanos facing Quneitra. A Syrian attempt to reclaim the area without a peace agreement in 1973 was successfully blocked, and so it is held by Israel to this day.

In the years of Israeli hold the Golan Heights they witnessed unprecedented development, and so they offer also various tourist attractions –  Avital Volcanic Park Bethsaida ,  Kursi Gamla ,  Umm el-Kanatir Golan-Magic Visitors center
