About: Israel vs Palestinians
Donald Trump cast aside decades of U.S. foreign policy and unilaterally declared that the United States government recognizes Israel's right to the disputed Golan Heights region it annexed in the 1967 Six-Day War against Arab powers. The announcement was not made in consultation with any American allies and threatens to upend Middle-East peace efforts for years to come. While Israel has controlled the region for decades, the international community has never recognized the annexation and has long hoped it would be sorted out in any eventual peace deal between the two parties.
