Emek HaBakha (The Valley of Tears)

 

Emek HaBakha (The Valley of Tears), which is 4 kilometers wide, spreads in the area between Mount Hermonit and the ridge of hills that is situated to the north of the Syrian city of Quneitra. In Emek HaBakha the Syrian army tried to penetrate the Israeli front line of defense during the Yom Kippur War which took place in 1973, and was stopped. On the side of the road there is an impressive monument that commemorates all the Israeli soldiers who fell in the battle which was held here in the valley. The monument is composed out of the armored plates of a tank and from the raised cannon of a tank that is sunk in the ground. Next to this monument stands a modern Syrian tank with its cannon turned downward in a silent salute. At the feet of the monument there is a bronze plate with the names of the soldiers who fell here during the 1973 Yom Kippur War and after it written on it and in its center are written words of commemoration. From the location of the monument there is a magnificent observation point toward the views of the green Emek HaBakha or Valley of Tears.
