Golan Tourist Sites Closed due to Syrian Misfire


The IDF has shut down a number of tourist locations in the Golan Heights, due to concerns that exchanges of fire between rebel forces and the Syrian army may lead to stray bullets or rockets crossing the border into Israel.

Among the sites shut down are: the Volcanic Park and the Quneitra Observatory. Route 98 has also been closed to traffic, near Alonei Bashan.
