Israel unveils illegal ‘Trump’ settlement in Golan Heights

Netanyahu yesterday inaugurated the settlement – called “Ramat Trump”, Hebrew for “Trump Heights” – hailing the US President as a “great friend” of Israel. The development will extend the existing settlement of Bruchim, located in the occupied Syrian Golan Heights captured by Israel during the war of 1967.

Earlier this year, President Trump unilaterally recognised the Golan Heights as Israeli territory, ignoring international law under which it remains occupied territory. Yesterday’s move has been touted as Israel’s attempt to honour and thank President Trump for his decision.

Netanyahu yesterday echoed this sentiment, calling the event an “historic day” and telling a government meeting that “we’re going to establish a new community, something that hasn’t happened in many years, and in honour of President Donald Trump”.

President Trump responded to the inauguration, writing on Twitter “Thank you PM Netanyahu and the State of Israel for this great honor!”
