Israelis view Syrian war from Golan Heights
In this photo taken May 17, 2014 - Israelis view Syrian army attacks on rebel-held town of Kunetra just across from the Golan Heights. In the foreground, former Syrian military position seized in 1967 ("Six Day") war. Prior to its capture, the emplacement routinely shelled Israeli kibbutz below.
Aware of the possibility of a cross-border intrusion, Israel maintains a tank brigade just below the Golan Heights.
