Apples from Golan to Syria

Below is a Druze Arab spiritual leader (in the wording of AP) who works at an apple warehouse in the village of Majdal Shams in the Golan Heights

Here the info:

Trucks carrying apples produced by Arab farmers in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights began arriving in Syria on Tuesday in an effort to help the farmers market their main crop.

And here the ‘refresh your memory’ part:

Israel annexed the Golan plateau in 1981, offering Israeli citizenship to its 25,000 residents, who mostly belong to the Druse sect, an offshoot of Islam. But most Druze did not take the offer.

So many different types of Druzes in the levant eh? It is all about social structures..
