Horned figures from cult of a Mesopotamian moon god discovered in biblical-era fort

A 3,000-year-old fort containing a carving of mysterious horned figures has been discovered in the Golan Heights. And it may have been built by the kingdom of Geshur, an ally of the Israeli King David

It sits on a small hill overlooking a river crossing. Israeli archaeologists discovered the structure while surveying the area where a new neighborhood is being built in the settlement of Hispin. (The Golan Heights was captured by Israel from Syria in 1967 and its status is disputed; Hispin is an Israeli settlement there.)
