Valley of Tears

Standing on top of Mount Bental you can see across the border and into Syria - where the farm fields end. Today there is a conflict within their border, but during the Yom Kippur war a major battle was fought in this valley. 160 Israeli tanks managed to hold off 1500 Syrian tanks. The Israelis were decimated, but after losing 400 tanks, the Syrians thinking they were fighting a much larger force retreated.
