Study of seventy well-preserved fossil remains from deposits of an eroded karstic cave in the Upper Galilee of northern Israel. This assemblage probably dates to the Early Toringian (MQ2, Middle Pleistocene). The AA. correlate the carnivore faunule with some Near Eastern and southern Levantine sites and assume that only a severe cold phase could have shifted these species over the Taurus-Zagros mountain chain this far to the south. This faunule elucidates Pleistocene biotic exchanges between Europe and the Levant during this period
