Quneitra

General Assembly . It passed a resolution on 29 November 1974 describing the destruction of Quneitra as "a grave breach of the Fourth Geneva Convention (Fourth Geneva Convention)" and "condemn ing Israel for such acts," by a margin of 93 votes to 8, with 74 abstentions. The United Nations Commission on Human Rights also voted to condemn the "deliberate destruction and devastation" of Quneitra in a resolution of 22 February 1975, by a margin of 22 votes to one (the United States) with nine abstentions. "Human Rights Commission condemns Israel". ''The Times'', 22 February 1975 The U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants, a non-governmental organization, has reported that: "Before leaving, however, the Israelis leveled the city with bulldozers and dynamite."

'' sic '' The city remains in a destroyed condition. Syria has left the ruins in place and built a museum to memorialize its destruction. It maintains billboards at the ruins of many buildings and effectively preserves it in the condition that the Israeli army left it in. The former residents of the town have not returned and Syria discourages the re-population of the area. However, in the 2004 census by the Central Bureau of Statistics (Central Bureau of Statistics (Syria)), a small population of 153 people living in 28 households was recorded, all living in the neighborhood of Rasm al-Rawabi.

Yom Kippur War Like the rest of the IDF, the Golani Brigade was caught by surprise with the first Arab attack of the Yom Kippur War. The brigade's sector in the Golan Heights was lightly manned, and most of its units were either on leave or preparing for a planned major ceremony. The Syrians attacked in three major locations: near Khushniya, Quneitra and Mas'ada. The 13th Battalion's position on Mount Hermon was overrun (First Battle of Mount Hermon) on October 6–7, 1973. The brigade was assigned defence of the northern Golan, in preparation for a push to retake the Hermon. Golan Region In Quneitra and the Golan Region (Quneitra Governorate), there was a numerous Circassian (Circassians) community. Several Circassian leaders wanted in 1938, for the same reasons as their Assyrian, Kurdish and Bedouin counterparts in Al-Jazira province in 1936-1937, a special autonomy status for their region as they feared the perspective of living in an independent Syrian republic under a nationalist Arab government hostile towards the minorities. They also wanted the Golan region to become a national homeland for Circassian refugees from the Caucasus. A Circassian battalion served in the French army and had helped it against the Arab nationalist uprisings. Like in Al-Jazira Province the French authorities refused to grant any autonomy status to the Golan Circassians. M. Proux, "Les Tcherkesses", ''La France méditerranéenne et africaine'', IV, 1938 The 5th Indian Brigade Group—commanded by Brigadier Wilfrid Lewis Lloyd—were ordered to cross the Syrian border from Palestine and take Quneitra and Deraa. It was anticipated that this would open the way for the 1st Free French Division forces to advance to Damascus. Four days after the commencement of the operation, this force was bought under unified command and was named ''Gentforce'' after its French commander, Major-General Paul Louis Le Gentilhomme (Paul Legentilhomme). The frequent reverting is causing trouble on several pages, attracting sockpuppetry, proxy IP reversions, and personal attacks. This isn't to excuse the sockpuppetry and abusive responses, but there's a causal relationship between them and Yuber's editing practices. Currently protected in part because of him are Jihad, Saudi Arabia, Quneitra, Terrorism, Qana, and Suicide bombing. Although others are obviously reverting too, Yuber's presence is the common denominator on the pages experiencing trouble, and based on what I've seen, reverting is all or most of what he does. A temporary revert parole would calm the situation down. SlimVirgin (User:SlimVirgin) (talk) (User_talk:SlimVirgin) 08:14, Jun 18, 2005 (UTC) History The kibbutz was founded in 1971 by a core group of settlers from the ''Machanot HaOlim'' Zionist youth movement. Although they had intended to settle in Beit HaArava in the southern Jordan River Valley (Jordan River), they were eventually persuaded to move to the Golan Heights. The original settlement was located in the vicinity of the occupied Syrian town of Quneitra, however, this settlement was destroyed during the Yom Kippur War, and an enormous tank battle (Armoured warfare) was fought in its fields. In June 1967 after battling Syria, Jordan and Egypt in the Six Day War, Israel captured the entire length of the Golan Heights including its principal city Quneitra. The resulting ceasefire line (dubbed the "Purple Line" as it was drawn on the UN's maps) was supervised by a series of positions and observation posts manned by observers of the United Nations Truce Supervision Organisation and became the new effective border between Israel and Syria. The sector is divided into two battalions—Erez, which monitors most checkpoints around Jerusalem, and Ta'oz, manning all other military police-run checkpoints. The Erez battalion lists three companies; Alef (A), Bet (B) and Gimel (C). The Ta'oz battalion lists the following companies: Eyal (אייל), Maccabim (מכבים), Reihan (ריחן), Sahlav (סחלב) and Shomron (שומרון). Other than these battalions, soldiers in the sector also help man crossings at Ghajar and Rosh HaNikra (Rosh HaNikra Crossing) (Lebanon), Quneitra (Syria), and Erez (Erez Crossing) and Kerem Shalom (Kerem Shalom Crossing) (Gaza Strip).
