The Golan Heights, or Golan Heights, is a strategically important area 60 km long and 25 km wide, which Israel captured in the 1967 Seven-Day War and annexed in 1981.

However, this was not recognized internationally. Based on international law, the area is considered Syrian territory under Israeli occupation.

Trump formally recognized the Golan Heights as Israeli territory in 2019, a huge shift from decades of US policy.

Syria had then characterized Trump’s decision as a “blatant attack” on its sovereignty.

Israel is bombing often targets in the neighboring country in an effort to prevent its nemesis, Iran, from expanding its influence there.

Iran and its ally, the Lebanese group Hezbollah, are important allies of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, whose forces have been fighting forces trying to topple his regime since 2011.
