U.S. President Donald #Trump says his decision to recognize Israeli control over the Golan Heights was made after a ‘quickie’ briefing. Syrian officials have vowed to take “every centimeter” of the region back from #Israel.
Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu welcomed John Bolton, Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs (NSA) to Jerusalem and impressed upon him – particularly in light of the announcement to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria – about the need for Israel to maintain sovereignty over its part of the Golan Heights.
The seven-year long Syrian civil war has created a refugee crisis, both those internally displaced and those who have fled the country. In response, a group of Jewish and Arab educators from Israel started the International School of Peace in Lesbos, Greece. Now, the refugee kids have somewhere to go to school.
