The governor of Quneitra, Eng. Moataz Abu Al-Nasr Jamran, pointed out the importance of the award, as it bears in its contents meanings and connotations in the heart of the Syrians for the name of the occupied Syrian Arab Golan, indicating that the heroic epics waged by the heroes of the Syrian Arab Army, and its victories over terrorism, are a source of inspiration and literary creativity for Syrian creators.
The Director of the Quneitra Culture, Ahmed Al-Marzouki, pointed out that the Golan Prize for Literary Creativity is a dedication to the culture and approach of resistance, which is a form of resistance and bears the name of the Golan, as an affirmation of our people’s insistence on liberating it and the return of the people to their land and homes from which they were abandoned by the Israeli occupation army after 1967.
It is noteworthy that the Golan Prize for Literary Creativity in the field of poetry and story has been launched since 2000.
