After Al-Quds, Trump Hands Occupied Syrian Golan to “Israel”
Again, it’s some Arabs’ silence and US hypocrisy that sells the land with no price.
US President Donald Trump announced that he will sign an official document recognizing so-called “Israel’s” sovereignty over the occupied Golan Heights on Monday when “Israeli” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is visiting the White House.
"President Trump will sign tomorrow in the presence of PM Netanyahu an order recognizing “Israeli” sovereignty over the Golan Heights," Foreign Minister “Israel” Katz wrote on Twitter on Sunday.
Trump’s statement on Friday caused a large number of condemnations.
Syria, Iran, Russia, EU, Turkey and France were among those condemning Trump’s statement, calling it a violation of international law.
The United Nations Human Rights Council [UNHRC] also voted in favor of condemning the unilateral move.
On Sunday, the adviser to Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution His Eminence Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei, Ali Akbar Velayati said: “the [US] declaration, which contradicts diplomatic agreements, is going to further complicate the situation in the Middle East beyond what it is today. It is a move for political support in the Zionist parliamentary elections and direct support for Netanyahu against his rivals.”
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas also reacted for the first time on Sunday to Trump's announcement.
“Mr. President Trump, you are not a ruler. You are not a ruler of the world. There is international legitimacy. There are international laws. If you want to be a ruler, you must abide by international legitimacy,” Abbas said.
