Golan Heights

Large groups of people in different Syrian provinces continued rallies for several consecutive days to protest at US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Israeli occupation over Syria’s Golan Heights.

The Arabic-language service of SANA news agency reported that a large number of people and civil activists in different parts of Syria, including Hasaka, Quneitra, Aleppo and Sweida, held protest rallies to condemn Trump’s decision.

Protestors slammed Trump for declaring Israel’s sovereignty over the occupied Golan Heights, stressing that the Syrian nation may never compromise its sovereignty right over the region.

The protestors said that the US decision is aimed at increasing tensions in the region, stopping Syria’s war on terrorism and meeting Israel’s goals, and underlined the need for the Syrian army to liberate the region.

Trump on Monday formally recognized Israeli sovereignty over the occupied Golan Heights, reversing decades of United State’s policy. The announcement came as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited the White House in a trip.

World nations and prominent international rights groups condemned the recent decision by Trump to recognize Israel’s “sovereignty” over the Golan Heights, which has been under the Tel Aviv regime’s occupation for more than 50 years.
