ISRAEL—A hill (they call it the Hill of Shouts) is near the Druze village of Majdal Shams at the foot of Mount Hermon, from which Druze families converse with relatives living across the border in Syria by means of shouting, hand waving, and megaphones. After the capture of the Golan Heights by Israel in the Six-Day War, a number of Druze villages remained in the area controlled by the Israelis. Most of these villagers have relatives on the Syrian side of the border, 1975.
