Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu has unveiled ‘Trump Heights’, a new settlement named after Donald Trump on the contested frontier with Syria, the Golan Heights. The US president signed a decree in March saying the US recognised Israeli sovereignty over the territory seized from Syria in 1967. Netanyahu unveiled a sign labeled ‘Trump Heights’ in English and Hebrew, decorated with the Israeli and US flags and planted on a patch of synthetic grass.
To my dear friends in the international press: A settlement by the name of "Trump Heights" or "Ramat Trump" doesn't exist. It my exist in the future but the Israeli cabinet still hasn't even decided to do it. For now there's only a sign. A huge sign. Like Kim Jong Un's envelopes
