Berekhat Ha Meshushim is a nature reserve in the Golan Heights, 70 km long and 25 km wide and extends from river Yarmuk in the South, along east waterside of Sea Genezareth to the foothills of Hermon in the north. Golan Heights slowly heighten from south and reaches in the north part heights of more than thousand meters. It consists of volcanic basalt and is furrowed by lots of dales.

Golan Heights belongs to Syria. Since 1967 Israel has annexed a 25 km wide stripe from this mountains. The annexed region is administered by Israeli military.
Fom Golan Heights Syria people had a view over the whole Huley Valley from Dan to Sea Genezareth and over both watersides of the sea. On Golan Heights there were living round 10.000 Druse people and some Syria people who didn`t want to leave. After 1967 Israeli settlements accrued, either half military outposts of young Nachal-units or pure military camps. Golan Heights do have just strategic meaning for Israeli military.
