Israeli Cabinet Meeting in Golan Denounced

Iran’s Foreign Ministry denounced Israel for holding a Cabinet meeting in the occupied Golan Heights, stressing that the region belongs to the Syrians and should be returned.
Foreign Ministry spokesman, Hossein Jaberi Ansari, condemned Israel’s expansionist move and repetition of baseless claims on the region, Fars News Agency reported on Tuesday.
“Golan is an occupied territory that belongs to Syria and should be returned to the country,” he said.
Ansari described Israel’s measure as a clear violation of international law and called for the international community’s serious move to confront the Zionist regime’s expansionist and provocative measures.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for the first time held his weekly Cabinet meeting in the occupied Golan Heights, amid criticism from Syrians.
Speaking in the Jewish-only settlement of Maaleh Gamla on Sunday, Netanyahu declared that 70% of the Golan, which Israeli forces occupied during the 1967 Middle East war, will “always remain” under Israeli control.
