In this photo taken on Tuesday, Sept. 16, 2014, Tayes , 86, a Druze shop owner stand in the entrance to his shop in Majdal Shams in Israeli-controlled Golan Heights near the border with Syria. For four decades, a multinational United Nations mission has quietly monitored the sleepy Golan Heights — providing a symbol of stability between bitter enemies as it enforced a truce between Israel and Syria.
