Golan Heights revised.

Uploaded a revised version of the Golan Heights heightmap and terrain map. This is mainly for Lt. George but feel free to have a look. Terrain map is from OSM data and contains a fairy well detailed road network. There are no buildings as this data set currently doesn't have any!!.

Links to follow once the files are approved.

Here is an image showing the change. The yellow box is the existing heightmap. The orange box is the revised map area.

At the initial phase of the 1973 war, the Syrian forces broke through the IDF southern sector defenses and managed to reach as near as 6-7 kms from the Kinneret lake, near Kanaf. They also reached El-Al, Katzabiya and Nafakh. Before their were destroyed by the arriving Israeli reserves, the Syrian force of the 47th armored brigade excitingly radioed their HQ that they can see Tiberias on the western bank of the lake.

By the end of the war, in addition to all the territory it lost, the IDF also took the territory between the Hermon mountain top, Mizraat Beit Jann, Tell Shams, Tell MareeTell Antar, Tell Al-Mal, Tell Maskhara and Umm-Bootna. "Tell" means a volcanic hill.

 

The original Israeli goal was to reach Kanakir, in order to put the outskirts of Damascus in the range of the M50 howitzers (French-made 155mm howitzers on Sherman chassis), but the arrival of the Iraqi armor to the Israeli southern flank made Israel settle on shelling Damascus Al-Maza airbase and other nearby bases with M107s from Mizraat Beit Jann (the control tower took a direct hit).

 

The book "Inside Israel's Northern Command: The Yom Kippur War on the Syrian border" by Dani Asher is recommended for anyone interested.

 

Israeli and Syrian forces kept exchanging fire until June 1974, when a disengagement agreement was signed and a UN-manned buffer zone was created.

Israeli forces leaving Tell Shams on June 18th, 1974:
