  • Description

    AFTER THREE DAYS OF LAND AND AIR CLASHES, THE SYRIAN-ISRAELI CEASEFIRE LINE ALONG THE GOLAN HEIGHTS REMAINS ONE OF THE FLASH POINTS IN THE TENSE MIDDLE EAST.

    IN THE LATEST FLARE-UP BETWEEN THE TWO HOSTILE NEIGHBOURS, ISRAELI AND SYRIAN TANKS, GUNS AND PLANES FOUGHT OUT A FIERCE LAND AND AIR BATTLE ON THE ISRAELI-OCCUPIED GOLAN HEIGHTS.

    HOWEVER, WHEN A VISNEWS CAMERAMAN VISITED THE BORDER AREA YESTERDAY (FEBRUARY 4TH) THE GOLAN HEIGHTS LAY PEACEFUL UNDER A WARM WINTER SUN.

    THIS FILM SHOWS AN ADVANCE SYRIAN POSITION IN THE GOLAN HEIGHTS, 55 KILOMETRES FROM THE CAPITAL, DAMASCUS.

    LABOURERS WERE HELPING TO BUILD FORTIFICATIONS, AND THE FRONT-LINE TROOPS APPEARED TO BE RELAXED BUT ALERT AT THEIR GUN POSITIONS.
