Trump Boldly Declares Israel's Sovereignty Over The Golan Heights

President Donald Trump boldly announced that the United States officially recognizes Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights on Thursday, reported CBN. This is seen as a turn of events and a move that defies international law and signals a significant change in US policy towards Israel. 

“Anybody that cares about regional stability should be concerned about the fact that Hezbollah is trying to build a terror network on our doorstep”

"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 tweeted.

Prime Minister Benhamin Netanyahu's office applauded the move, saying, "At a time when Iran seeks to use Syria as a platform to destroy Israel, @POTUS Trump boldly recognizes Israeli sovereignty in the Golan Heights. Thank you President Trump!"

A major shift happened last week when during the annual human rights report, the US State Department erased the phrase "Israeli-occupied" from the Golan Heights section, instead of calling it "Israeli-controlled." Israel Defense Forces exposed an Iranian-backed terror outpost on the Syrian Golan that same week.

“Anybody that cares about regional stability should be concerned about the fact that Hezbollah is trying to build a terror network on our doorstep,” IDF spokesman Jonathan Conricus said. “We will continue to use all means, overt and covert, to block Iran's effort to use Syria, Lebanon and Gaza as forward bases for attacking Israel,” he said.
