Israel responds to Blinken: Golan will remain forever a part of Israel

The Prime Minister’s Office issues a terse statement saying that “the Golan Heights will remain forever a part of the State of Israel.”

This in response to US Secretary of State Antony Blinken saying the US supports Israel currently controlling the Golan but adding that that may change in the future.

“The Golan is very important to Israel’s security,” Blinken said. But “legal questions are something else. And over time, if the situation were to change in Syria, that’s something we’d look at.”
