Turkey - SMART

On Thursday, the United States ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, said that he "cannot imagine" the occupied Golan will be returned to Syria.

The Haaretz Hume newspaper quoted Friedman as saying, "I can not imagine a situation in which the Golan Heights will be returned to Syria. I frankly cannot imagine a situation in which the Golan Heights is not part of Israel forever," according to Reuters.

The United Nations and foreign countries, including the U.S, do not recognize Israel's sovereignty over the occupied Golan. The U.S national security adviser told Donald Trump that Washington's policy has not changed.

Israel reiterates its call for the international community to recognize its sovereignty over the occupied Golan, where it met for the first time in 2016. Israel considers Golan as part of it "forever."

Israel occupied the Golan during the 1967 war when former President Hafez al-Assad was the defense minister. He could only regain the city of Quneitra in 1973. Israel declared the annexed the Golan Heights in 1981, a move not recognized internationally.
