Syria Furious At Trump's Proclamation That Golan Heights Belong To Israel

U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday recognized Israel’s 1981 annexation of the Golan Heights.

While it was an election boost for visiting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Trump's proclamation was a dramatic shift from decades of U.S. policy, and prompted a sharp response from Syria, which once held the strategic land.

According to Reuters, Trump announced the move in a tweet last Thursday, and appeared to be the most overt gesture by the Republican president to help Netanyahu.
