For many years Syria had fortified and built up their defenses on these heights over-looking the northern flank of Israel. During this time the Syrians had almost constantly shelled Israeli kibbutzes and communities from this elevated position. When war broke out Israel was determined to capture it and safeguard its northern border from these Syrian attacks. On the morning of June 9, 1967, three days after the war had begun, Israel attacked.
First with sustained air strikes and then with infantry, artillery and armour including their elite paratroopers. The fighting was hard and bloody but ultimately successful.
