UN Troops on the (Israeli) Golan Heights

Wednesday, April 8th, 2015

UNDOF (United Nations Disengagement Observer Force) troops from Ireland were on Mount Bental on the Israeli Golan Heights on Tuesday.

They were looking through the telescope into Syria and reviewing a map of the area, and doing what appeared to be a daily briefing or an introductory session for new soldiers.

Mount Bental is the site of old IDF bunkers and trenches overlooking Syria.

Now it’s a tourist site.

It’s about as close to Syria as these UN troops are going to get these days, with all that internecine fighting going on over there.

Afterwards the UN troops went for lunch in Katzrin.

It’s tough to be a UN peacekeeper.

Updated: Syrian Infiltrators Attack IDF Patrol on Golan, and 25 Mortars Too

Tuesday, July 16th, 2013

Two Syrian rebels crossed over into the Golan on Tuesday night. The IDF now believes that it was Syrian army soldiers who simultaneously opened fire at the IDF patrol, from across the border. The IDF soldiers shot back at the source of the fire. No IDF soldiers were injured in the attack. The status of the two Syrians who crossed over is currently unknown.

In addition, 6 mortars, launched from Syria, hit the Israeli side of the Golan today, and another 20 landed near the border.

At least one false alarm was heard this evening, in or near the town of Katzrin on the Golan.
