The Golan, seized by Israel from its Arab neighbour in the 1967 Six-Day War, has been mostly quiet since the 1973 Yom Kippur War. Tension, however, has risen since the 2011 start of the conflict in Syria between rebels and regime forces. AFP PHOTO/MENAHEM KAHANA Credit MENAHEM KAHANA/AFP/Getty Images
