Who started a war. Syria has attacked Israel on three separate occasions and lost every single time. In 1967 even after the cease fire took effect with Egypt and Jordan the Syrians continued to fire from the Golan Heights into the towns and villages in and around the Sea of Galilee. I know because I spent most of my childhood sleeping in bomb shelters when the Syrians shelled us day and night. We used armored tractors to plough our fields as protection against the Syrian snipers so I was a proud GOLANI who scaled the heights in 1967 and took back what was ours and so that the next generations of Israeli children could sleep in peace.
