BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:00 P.M.) – U.S. President Donald Trump tweeted on Thursday that it is time for his nation to recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights region.
After 52 years it is time for the United States to fully recognize Israel’s Sovereignty over the Golan Heights, which is of critical strategic and security importance to the State of Israel and Regional Stability!
Trump’s comments come just a week after U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham made a visit to the occupied Golan Heights region with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Graham said he would be pushing for U.S. Congress to pass a bill that would recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights.
Despite Trump’s comments, the United Nations still holds Israel’s presence in the Golan Heights as an ‘occupation’, while also recognizing that it to be Syrian territory.
