In this Thursday, April 21, 2016 photo Druze cowboy Wafiq Ajami, smokes a cigarette after rounding up some 650 head of cattle in the Israeli controlled Golan Heights near the border with Syria. For Wafiq Ajami, a 54-year-old Druze cowboy who lives along the Syrian border, the fighting there is far more personal. He has relatives on the other side whose been affected, and he’s had to save his own cattle from spillover fire that has damaged his fields. “At first I thought it was arson, and I yelled out ‘someone is setting fire to the field,'” he recalled. “Then all of the sudden I saw the mortars landing.” Israel captured Golan from Syria in the 1967 war.
