On the Israeli-Syrian border, Israeli tourists are flocking to get a glimpse of the civil war just a few miles away. Tour operators are cashing in on the popular new ‘must-see’ attraction.
The last time Israelis saw this many Syrians in battle was when they were attacking Israel in 1973, 1967, and 1948.
Armed with binoculars and cameras, tourists in Israel are flocking to the Golan Heights in the hope of seeing the bloody conflict in neighboring Syria, sparking a trend among tour operators. It’s very entertaining to watch your neighbors bomb and shoot the living daylights out of each other, especially when they are out of range of you!
