President Trump tweeted last Thursday that it is time for the US to recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights. Recently, in the State Department’s annual human rights report, it dropped the phrase “Israeli-occupied” from the Golan Heights section, instead calling it “Israeli-controlled.”
Meanwhile, dozens of Golan Druze, gathered in the Golan Heights on Saturday to protest US President Donald Trump’s support for Israeli sovereignty over the territory.
The UN Security council is scheduled to discuss the Golan on Wednesday during a meeting on renewing the mandate of the UN peacekeeping force deployed between Israel and Syria in the Golan, known as UNDOF.
