Stay safe?[edit]

I'm extremely hazy on details, but my understanding is that some Israeli settlements, and I would assume some kibbutzim, are located in areas that really irritate Palestinians and are therefore prime targets for some types of attack. I'd say this article should contain warnings for anywhere there is significant danger, and perhaps also do some debunking for areas that are not really dangerous.

I note it lists several locations in the Golan Heights. Does Syria still claim that area? Might it become dangerous if Syria ever sorts out its internal problems? Pashley (talk) 17:22, 5 June 2013 (UTC)

I purposely did not list any places in the West Bank. The Golan Heights, however, is presently completely safe (and has been for decades). Yes, the area is still claimed by Syria, but from a traveller's point of view at present time - it is completely part of Israel. --ElectAbuzzzz (talk) 21:31, 5 June 2013 (UTC)
Syria does not currently recognize any part of Israel - not even Tel Aviv. Hobbitschuster (talk) 11:43, 11 May 2017 (UTC)
Right. A Syria that rights itself and decides to singlemindedly attack Israel would undoubtedly kill Israelis, though before the end of such a conflict, it would probably rain more devastation on itself than Israel. However, this is all a hypothetical right now, certainly not limited to the Golan Heights, and the exact same thing could be said about a host of places in India, if Pakistan decided to attack, or vice versa, or even Seoul, other parts of South Korea, or Japan, if North Korea decided to attack. I don't think there are actually kibbutzim on the West Bank, except in the Jordan Valley, which I've read tends to have the least conflict of any area of the West Bank. Note that the whole idea of a kibbutz is socialist, and most settlements on the West Bank tend to be very right-wing. Ikan Kekek (talk) 21:51, 11 May 2017 (UTC)
