The Golan Heights – Under Cover of the Israel Air Force

Share/Bookmark

Israel’s mountainous northern region is known as the Golan Heights. It is one of the most beautiful and most traveled parts of the country. The Golan Heights rise from 400 to 1700 feet. Its western border is the Yarden River and its southern border is the Yarmuk River. The Golan is the headwaters of the Jordan river valley. The water sources in this area are very important to the survival of Israel. The Golan was captured from Syria in 1967 by Israel, whose aim was to put an end to the Syrian practice of shooting into Israeli settlements from the hills and mountains of the Heights.
