Israel’s Enemies Protest US Recognition of Israeli Sovereignty Over the Golan Heights

(JNS) Russia, Syria, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Iraq criticized the United States for recognizing the Golan Heights as Israeli territory, following a ceremony attended by U.S. President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu earlier this week.

The ceremony featured the signing of an official proclamation and was also attended by Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. The pen Trump used to sign the declaration was handed to Netanyahu as a gift for the Israeli people.

“In a blatant attack on the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Syria, the president of the U.S. has recognized the annexation of the Syrian Golan,” a Syrian foreign ministry source was quoted as saying by SANA Syrian state media.

The source told SANA that American support for Israel has made the United States a foremost enemy of the Arabs.

Saudi Arabia’s state news agency said Tuesday the declaration could have “significant consequences for the peace process.”
