Syria | Pompeo from Golan Heights: This is a part of Israel

Accompanied by Israeli Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo visited the occupied Golan Heights where he underlined that "this is a part of Israel."

Pompeo traveled aboard a Blackhawk helicopter to the occupied Golan Heights.

“You can’t stand here and stare out at what’s across the border and deny the central thing that President Donald Trump recognized… This is a part of Israel,” he said.

Last year, Trump’s administration controversially recognized Israeli sovereignty in the Golan.
