On Monday, Trump signed a presidential proclamation officially recognising the Golan Heights, captured from Syria in 1967, as Israeli territory and hence defied a 52-year-old unanimously adopted UN resolution on “inadmissibility of the acquisition of territory by war.”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called Trump’s recognition a “diplomatic victory” and said that “Israel won the Golan Heights in a just war of defence.”
