Cowboys of the Golan Heights - 29 May 2013
Photographer Nir Elias spent time documenting the cowboys of Moshav Yonatan, a collective farming community some two kilometres south of the ceasefire line between Israel and Syria in the Golan Heights. The group have been running the ranch on the Golan's volcanic rocky plateau for some 35 years. The farm also hosts the Israeli military who use half of the cattle farm, 2,0000 dunams (5,000 acres), as a live-fire training zone. Israel captured the Golan Heights from Syria in the 1967 Middle East war and annexed the territory in 1981, a move not recognized internationally.

Nadav, the chief cowboy of the Yonatan herd, gets his horse ready in the early morning, on a ranch just outside Moshav Yonatan, a collective farming community, about 2 km (1 mile) south of the ceasefire line between Israel and Syria in the Golan Heights May 21, 2013. Cowboys, who have been running the ranch on the Golan's volcanic rocky plateau for some 35 years, also host the Israeli military, who use half of the cattle farm, 20,000 dunams (5,000 acres), as a live-fire training zone. Israel captured the Golan Heights from Syria in the 1967 Middle East war and annexed the territory in 1981, a move not recognized internationally. Picture taken May 21, 2013.
