Golan Heights, Israel - State of
ISRAELI COUPLE BY TANK TURRET AS OVERLOOK KUNEITRA ON GOLAN HEIGHTS.
Erez Zur (R) and his girlfriend Rahel Kogan embrace on a overlook on the Golan Heights facing the Syrian town of Knueitra (behind them) January 12. An Israeli tank turret from one of the Middle East wars stands as a monument at left. Erez comes often to the Golan Heights where his brother, Alon, a setter on the Golan Heights lived in Kibbutz Ortal and was killed in 1983 in Lebanon. When asked how he felt about returning the Golan Heights to Syrian he said, "My heart says no, my logic says yes." At this area at the western edge of the Golan Heights one can easily see well into Syrian territory past Kuneitra, including the Mount Hermon mountain chain (rear, left) occupie both by Syria and Israel.
