After lunch we boarded the bus for Metullah, a city on Israel's northern border with Lebanon. As you can see in the picture below we stopped at the Canada centre, created by our Jewish community in the 1980's and kept up with annual donations
Finally we drove up to the top of the Golan Heights to see the spot of the most important battle of the1973 Yom Kippur war. After viewing the short film Oz77 we saw the location of the tank battle where 44 Israeli tanks withstood the surprise Syrian assault with over 500 tanks. With bravery and courage the fighters halted the attack and held our northern border.
We arrived back at the hotel at 6:30 in time for dinner and a relaxing night in Tiberius.
Now we need our sleep for more touring and rafting down the Jordan River tomorrow.
