The Conflict with Israel

What Is?

The Conflict with Israel is an ongoing struggle that has produced numerous wars in recent history.

The conflict was instigated by Israeli occupation of Syrian and Egyptian land shortly after the British government had facilitated the establishment of Israel in Palestine.

Notwithstanding, Syria has confirmed its willingness to make peace in return for the complete Israeli withdrawal from the occupied Golan.

Lake Tabariya

The eastern shoreline of Lake Tabariya was the sticking point of the Syrian-Israeli peace negotiations that started with the Madrid Peace Conference in 1991. After initially committing to a complete withdrawal from the occupied Golan in return for peace with Syria, Israel later refused to give up land on the eastern shoreline of Lake Tabariya which constitute the borders of the Golan.
