The Beautiful South (Part3)

Hi All! This is the view from Beaufort Castle towards the north east which is in the direction of the mouth of the Bekaa valley. It is also part of where the Mount Lebanon range ends in the south, like a river flowing into an endless sea of overlapping hills. Enjoy :D.

  1. Historically, control of this area has been immensely important for both the Syrians and the Israelis as it is a relatively flat region which allows for a rapid movement of troops into Northern Israel and - more importantly - Damascus, the Syrian capital.

    During the "Syrian Occupation" tens of thousands of Syrian troops were stationed at this entrance to the Bekaa Valley.

  2. Yes, but you cannot see the mouth of the Bekaa inthis pic as it would be located over the hills.

  3. this is a naive comment mr jade. The Alawite regime in Syria since its establishement never cared about Damascus, the Golan or anthing related to those areas. They only cared about their areas in northeastern Syria where they heil from. All the rest could be sold...

  5. Seriously Debate. Sometimes I ask myself if your hatred of Syria doesn't get in the way of how you present your facts.

  6. I have no hatred whatsoever towards Syria. I am against the regime in Syria, who sold the Golan in 1967 for Israel, and who's survival is an israeli demand, refer to my previous post on this issue.
