In the north area of the town,  houses are situated on a low land. while it has boundary with Abu saeed valley in the east and it is surrounded by forests in the west and north  where the land inclines towards Al- Saar valley in the north .

Masada village which belongs to Quneitra governorate  was a center to other villages before the occupation in 1967. The town provided social services for the inhabitants and  other villages.

The village fell prey in the throes of the aggressive occupation in 1967  and Masada is still one of a few remaining villages under occupation.

Majdal Shamas

Majdal Shams is one of the largest villages in the Golan Heights . The number of its population reaches to more than 9000 inhabitants. It's located on south slopes of (Mount Hermon) Jabal Al-Sheikh, at 1350 meters above sea level. The town is famed for farming apples and cherries.

Majdal Shams is known for its resistance to the Israeli terrorist occupation. It is worthy to mention that it was burned twice during the French occupation era, but the village remained resistant till its people expelled the French occupiers from Syria.

 Many of the people in the village were martyred during their resistance of Israeli occupation. In addition, many of Majdal Shams people  are still in the jails of Israeli occupation.

 The people of Majdal Shams, like other people in the rest of Golan villages, did not surrender to Israeli occupation. They are  still fighting the enemy to liberate Golan and restore it back home.

Golan Women's Heroism

It is obvious that women in the occupied Golan Heights  are  as men  in  defending  their  beloved forefathers  land,  Golan. Women in Golan participate in  heroism  battles alongside their  brothers and husbands who are  resisting  the Israeli  occupation.

The woman in Golan  was martyred , imprisoned and suffered all kinds of torture and oppression, but is  still an example of strength and determination. 

There is no doubt that the Zionist occupier is trying every day to  invent new methods to intimidate the  woman in Golan  seeking to humiliate them, but all these  desperate attempts of the occupation were in vain .

 One of the heroines of the Golan described  what happened  to her when she was summoned  by some of the Israeli  soldiers for  investigation : " I felt alone in the battle of existence when they fettered me and  took me to an interrogation center in Acre and refused to  tell  my brother and my sister, who were with me outside the center. The  investigation was so harsh , they deprived me of sleeping and forced me to stand for hours. But in those moments, I felt I was stronger than  them because I believed in  the issue of my  homeland, Golan Heights. Moreover,  the prisoner represents free people who  have an indomitable will to resist occupation and pledged himself and his soul in defense of freedom."

 

Therefore  the aggressor, who is an ignoramus of the books of  history , must know  that right is above falsehood and  that the  women in the Golan Heights are  the voice of  right and heroism. She was the mother of heroes who carry on their shoulders a great  honorable task to restore  our beloved  Golan.

The Blunders Committed

The fears and nightmares are haunting the Israelis politicians' lives when they see the uprising of our people in the Golan Heights as a reality pursuing them wherever they go. Israelis' Leaders and politicians are incapable of facing  the increasing struggle as to get rid  of  occupation.

Hence,  the leaders of the Zionist entity are always living the obsession of anxiety of tomorrow which will be loaded with a lot of unpleasant surprises, due to their great series  of blunders  they committed without any consideration for the future.

One of these blunders is that reckless decision which is taken after the  Israeli's aggression on  the fifth of June 1967 in occupying the Golan, this is followed by the Knesset decision to annex the Golan to Israel in 1981.

But this decision was rejected by the international community which insisted  that Golan Heights is Syrian land whether Israel liked  it or not.

Actually, the steadfast Syrians in the Golan are determined to restore their occupied territories , facing bravely the brutality and  violation practices of the Israeli occupier who put  free Syrians in jails , burned peasants'  lands , besides they destroyed   the  houses on the heads of their owners and prevented  children from going to schools .

 

But the  revolutionary  Golan is still insisting  to write epics  of victory , and Syrians in the Golan are still determined to symbolize their loyalty to the motherland Syria  of  honor and  dignity.

Golan People are True Manhood

The whole world has witnessed that the well-established people of Golan are very much attached to their land in Syria.

Syria is the alphabet  land in history where man has started his journey of  knowledge. It is the land of civilization that taught its sons how to resist and confront invaders.

The people in Golan never get relentless in fighting their enemies and they would not allow others to help them to write down  the epic of history, they are fluent in writing and reading the alphabet.

Today, the Syrians are defending their  pride and dignity on their land. They are gaining the epics of yesterday, which could be away but closely connected to their memory.

The brave men in Golan would not retreat  from pursuing their decision to plant trees.The decisions taken by Syrians to stand with the sons of Golan in order to   furnish them with all resistance means.

The Syrian people will not retreat from their target to regain the Golan,  because writing an epic is their utmost target in history.

Syrian Golan people  decision is to work in all possible means to  restore this precious part of Syria and free as it was.  The people of Syria  are the truly qualified to create the coming victory and prepare for the beauty of home. We are sure  that our right will be shortly achieved.
