found a good pic of said Panzer on an Israeli forum.They probably showed you Tel Faher, a really well fortified Syrian emplacement on the high ground. Helluva thing for infantry to have to attack. There is another fortified post a bit to the south called Tel Azaziyat, which the IDF were able to take more easily by surprising it from the rear.
Last time I was there there was a Syrian Mk 4 Panzer in it's emplavement but with it's turret turned around to face the surprise attack from the rear.
You have to see these places, the topography and the proximity of civilian settlements to understand the strategic neccessity of holding on to the land.
Of course, if the neighbours weren't so murderous, including to each other, it mightn't be such a sensitive issue.
