Trump backs Israel's sovereignty over Golan

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday it was time to back Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights, territory Israel seized from Syria in the 1967 Middle East War.

The recognition of the disputed area would mark a major shift in U.S. policy a week before Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu arrives in Washington.

Trump backs Israel's sovereignty over Golan

President Trump on Thursday said it was time to BACK Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights…a territory that Israel seized from Syria in 1967… …tweeting that the move was "of critical strategic and security importance to the State of Israel and Regional Stability…" The CONTROVERSIAL announcement marks a MAJOR SHIFT in U.S. policy...and Trump's most overt move yet to help Israel's embattled Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu…as he faces re-election next month… …and prepares to come to Washington next week.

Israel annexed the Golan in 1981 in a move not recognized by the international community.

President of the Council on Foreign Relations, Richard Haas, said he strongly disagreed with the move…tweeting that it violates a U.N.

Security Council resolution that "rules out acquiring territory by war…" Netanyahu has long pressured Trump to recognize Israel's claim to sovereignty over the disputed area.

Netanyahu thanked Trump via tweet and by phone, saying "you've made history." Trump is scheduled to host Netanyahu at the White House on Monday and Tuesday of next week.
