Secretary-General of the Arab League Ahmed Aboul Gheit announced that the league fully supports Syrian sovereignty over the Golan Heights.

“The League of Arab States fully supports Syria’s right for its occupied territory. We have a specific position, based on resolutions, on this issue,” Aboul Gheit said on Thursday.

The official insisted that the Golan Heights were occupied territory belonging to Syria under international law and the resolutions of the United Nations and the UN Security Council.

Meanwhile, a representative of the European Union’s diplomatic service stressed that the EU still doesn’t recognize the territory as part of Israel.

The Golan Heights, considered by Syria to be a part of its territory, was occupied by Israel during the 1967 Six-Day War. It was not until 1981 that Tel Aviv passed legislation formally annexing the area. The United Nations has not recognised the annexation.

Earlier on Thursday, Trump took to Twitter during a visit by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to Jerusalem to say that it was time for the US to recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights, adding that the territory “is of critical strategic and security importance to the State of Israel and regional stability”.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu responded to Trump’s statement by thanking the US president for his support.

It is good to see the Arab League, of which Syria is now a member again,refusing to give Arab land to the Zionists. There is an analysis of this situation at Quora today: https://www.quora.com/If-Israel-doesnt-recognize-Palestine-then-what-do-they-call-the-land-where-the-Palestinians-live/answer/Vince-Dhimos?__nsrc__=4&__snid3__=4116514500&comment_id=89466198&comment_type=2

Palestina comes from the Hebrew word “Paleshet” which means… Invader! Same root as the Philistines, the Greek invaders who established in Gaza…

Romans referred to the Philistines, so renamed the land in reference to Jews long gone enemies. Goliath was a philistine, the temple Samson crumbled was so.

No? Barely 15,000!

8,000 in Jerusalem (on 60k inhabitants), 5,000 in Haifa, all imported from Hejaz kingdom by Turks to build the Haifa-Damascus railroad, the remainder were nomads.

The critical strategic and security importance of the Golan to Israel does not matter. UNSC res 242 finds the conquest of land unacceptable. So the Golan must be returned – when Syria and Israel make a peace treaty.
UNSC res. 497, adopted unanimously on 17 December 1981, declared that the Israeli Golan Heights Law, which annexed the Golan Heights is “null and void and without international legal effect”.

@Daeshbags-Sux, where is Your intellectual problem? You have read the “should” out of context. The principle is stated at the front. The “should” does not alter the principle. But gives both sides advice on what to do. UNSC res 242 says. Expressing its continuing concern with the grave situation in the Middle East, Emphasizing the inadmissibility of the acquisition of territory by war and the need to work for a just and lasting peace in which every State in the area can live in security, Emphasizing further that all Member States in their acceptance of the Charter of the United… Read more »

@Daeshbags-Sux, Summary: IMHO You do not understand the two resolutions about the Golan at all.

On the condition of a peace treaty Israel will have to return the Golan. That is what is said in diplomatic words.

Because before Your “should” UNSC res 242 is already “Reaffirming that the acquisition of territory by force is inadmissible”. And UNSC res. 497 only repeats that.

p.s. Neither Syria and Israel adhere fully to UNSC res 242.
