Administrative divisions and population:
The Golan started to be recognized as a seperate administrative unit in August 1964 after the Establishment of "al Quneitra Governorate by joining two administrative units:
1-Al Quneitra District(then part of Damascus) with other villages: S'hita, Hadar, Tranjeh and Jubbata al Khashab. The region was again realigned to include four sub- units: al Quneitra proper, Masaada, al Khushnia and Khan Arnaba .
2-Fiq District: Fiq was part of Daraa governorate. It was realigned to include two administrative sub - units: Fiq proper and al Bteiha with its center, al Mihjar village, north east of Lake Tiberia.
Before the Israeli aggression of June 5th 1967, the population of Quneitra were about 153000 people with an average density of /83/people/square km, which means that Golan was densely populated compared with other Syrian governorates. Now the total population of the governorate is 500 000 people (including those displaced by Israeli Occupation). Part of them(22000)are still living in areas occupied by Israel ,another part,(85 0000) live in the liberated villages and in Quneitra ,the town.The majority of the population (around 300 000)live in unusually severe conditions in interim groupings mostly located in the governorates of Damascus, ,Damascus D.C. and Daraa. Those are the displaced people expelled by the Israeli forces after the aggression of 1967.They are waiting the day when they can return to their homes, fields and lands. They are scattered in more than 270 towns, villages and farms in the occupied part of the Golan.
