And when you wage war and lose, you don't always get to keep your territory.

The Ottomans lost WW1 and Britain took Palestine and France took Syria.

The Syrians lost the 6 Day War and Israel took Golan.

By 1967, Syria should have known that Israel would keep any territory that it gained in war. And they chose to roll the dice.

That's great. Still Syrian territory though.

Because they are still at war and therefore there has been no treaty.

Israel is defending the territory it captured in war, against a nation with whom it is still at war.
