Weekly Photo Challenge: Abandoned

Druze village that was abandoned during the 1967 war, Golan Heights, Israel.

Barbed wire is common in this area.

I still find it hard to comprehend that these ruins are not remnants of an ancient civilization, but reminders of a community that called this compound home just over 50 years ago.

Thanks to this week’s photo challenge for reminding me of this recently abandoned part of history.
