The Valley of the Tears is the name given to a 4 day battle of the 1973 Yom Kippur War where Syrian tanks and APC’s attacked through the valley to get to the Israeli towns beyond. The Israeli’s were massively outnumbered and it was a close run thing but the Syrians eventually retreated, leaving around 500 destroyed vehicles for the cost of about 70 Israeli tanks and crews.

After watching the film we drove the short distance to the battle site and the memorial to the 77th Battalion Memorial. This was well signposted although further to drive than we expected. We were able to see the Israeli trenches and some destroyed tanks from the battle as well as the spectacular views that the defensive position commanded. We also very sensibly avoided the minefields that still dotted the site. Driving back we saw lots of prepared berms in case of another attack and a mock village for urban warfare training.

It was so close, and if it weren't for a few simple people...
I believe every Israeli should come to this place and reflect on what could have happened if it were not for their sacrifice.
Churchill said it for the RAF pilots during the Blitz of London on August 20th 1940:
"Never was so much owed by so many to so few"
And it is true here as well.

True Heroes.

The location is above the valley where tank forces from Syria advanced and were stopped by a few israeli tanks in the Yom Kippur war, an amazing military feat.

We took our kids and grandkids to see this and even ran into a few snow flakes that started to fall while we were there. Well worth the time to stop by in the north of Israel.

This site offers a good panoramic view of the Valley of Tears in the Golan Heights. The tanks and sculptures made from guns, sheet metal, turrets and tank tracks and the plaques bearing the names of fallen soldiers are solemn reminders of the horrors of war and the costly sacrifices for freedom and survival.

This is an excellent place to look at the battle location between Israel and Syria. Some old tanks were damaged during the battle are the for people to look at and climb on. A lot of lives were lost on both sides. You can walk through the trenches where the soldier’s fort from. You do need to stay on the track provided as some area are closed due to land mines. All well marked and fenced off.

Must-See ....... the battlefield (Valley of Tears) and the 20-minute movie.

The current movie is about a year old, so if you've seen an earlier version, you'll probably want to see the update.

The kibbutz does most of the dubbing of Israeli movies and TV shows. Watch when the credits roll and look for KIbbutz El Rom.

This was a "hidden gem" for our Trafalgar trip through Israel.
If you like tanks or are interested in the Yom Kippur War of 1973, you should visit this site. We saw three tanks (two we could approach).
Be sure to start the narrated speech on the machine. We saw that as we were leaving.
