The Golan region has been won and lost by war for centuries. It has been under Amarite rule, Hebrew rule, Arab rule, Ottomon rule , and French rule. It was ceded to the Republic of Syria post WW 1 by the French. Syria used it as a launching pad of assaults on the Israelis for decades. Right now it is back under Israeli rule. No assaults on Syria from the Golan since.
