Mideast Israel Golan Cowboys

Mideast Israel Golan Cowboys

In this Thursday, April 21, 2016 photo Israeli cowboy Yehiel Alon rides on horseback as he rounds up some 650 head of cattle in the Israeli controlled Golan Heights near the border with Syria. Alon cuts the figure of a quintessential cowboy. With his wide brim hat, Wrangler jeans and an ornate buckle on his leather belt, he could easily be mistaken for the Montana ranchers he once worked with. But the 53-year-old Alon is a cowboy on the Golan Heights bordering worn-torn Syria and the frontier life takes on a whole new meaning here. "It's probably the only place on earth where you will see cows alongside tanks," he says with a smile, a cigarette dangling from his lips. Israel captured Golan from Syria in the 1967 war.
