Skiing on the edge of Syria's war

Israeli soldiers of the alpine unit carry their skis during a patrol at the Israeli Mount Hermon ski resort, in the Israeli-occupied Golan HeightsOn a clear day Damascus is visible from the top of the ski lift 2,200 metres (7,200 feet) above sea level in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights where tourists reapply their sunscreen. The Syrian capital is only 40 kilometres (25 miles) away but there is no access to it as Israel and Syria are still officially at war. Israel seized most of the Golan Heights from Syria in the 1967 Six-Day War and later annexed the territory in a move never recognised by the international community.
