    The badge in the middle, right hand side is of the Israeli Engineer Regiment (Handasa).
    The trees I believe are supposed to be eucalyptus trees, planted in the Golan heights.
    The crest above the trees is the Syrian national symbol.

    All the rest is guess work, but I would think it sat around an Israeli base, I bought it in a Tel Aviv flea market for $2.50, and the guy thought I was crazy!
