June 14, 2020

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced on Sunday preparations for a new settlement in the occupied Golan Heights area on the border with Syria, which will bear a name in honor of U.S. President Donald Trump, a major international ally of the Hebrew state.

Netanyahu is thus confirming the position of these new houses, which were pushed forward last year as part of the unilateral peace plan with the United States earlier this year and which the Palestinian side has categorically rejected.

“We will begin the practical steps to build the Ramat Trump settlement (” Trump Heights “) in the Golan Heights,” the prime minister announced at the end of his weekly meeting of his council of ministers.
