Netanyahu: Golan Heights Will Remain Part of ‘Israel’ Forever – Syria Denounces Israeli Meeting in Golan: Provocative, Void

Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday the Golan Heights will forever remain part of ‘Israel’.

NetanyahuIn first cabinet meeting on the occupied Golan, Netanyahu said:

“The time has come for the international community to recognize reality. First, that whatever will be on the other side of the border, the border will not change.”

“And secondly,” Netanyahu added, “the time has come after 40 years for the international community to finally recognize that the Golan Heights will remain forever under Israeli sovereignty.”

Netanyahu said he told US Secretary of State John Kerry on Saturday that ‘Israel’ does not oppose current efforts to reach a political agreement to end the Syrian war, but that “Israel’s boundary line with the country will not change.”

Netanyahu claimed:

“The Golan was an integral part of the Land of Israel in ancient times. That is documented by dozens of ancient synagogues around us. And the Golan is an integral part of the State of Israel in the present time.”

Syria Denounces Israeli Meeting in Golan: Provocative, Void

Syria denounced on Sunday the Israeli government meeting in the occupied Syrian Golan, calling on the United Nations to condemn the provocative meeting.

In a letter sent to the UN Secretary-General and the head of the Security Council, the Syrian foreign ministry said Damascus “condemns in the strongest of terms the Israeli occupation government’s holding of this null and void meeting,” SANA news agency reported.

The ministry called on the UN and the Security Council to “intervene immediately to condemn that irresponsible meeting and demanding that this reckless act is never repeated, particularly since the meeting was held on occupied Syrian territory.”

Damascus also called the UN to “shoulder its commitments and duties of implementing the UN General Assembly and Security Council resolutions which did not recognize the Israeli occupation of Syrian territory, particularly Security Council resolution no. 497 for 1981 which rejects the Israeli Knesset’s decision of ill repute on annexing the Syrian Golan.”

The letter said that “as Syria is determined to fight terrorism and defeat terrorist groups that are backed by outside forces, particularly by Israel, Turkey, and Saudi Arabia, it will not forget or relent in its determination to continue working to liberate the Syrian Golan from Israeli occupation and to resist this occupation and its illegal policies and practices which are represented by imposing its null procedures and laws on occupied Syrian and Arab territories,” SANA added.
