Pompeo, on visit to Israel, says will travel to Golan Heights

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Thursday he would visit the Golan Heights, territory Israel captured from Syria in the 1967 Six-Day War, in a break from previous U.S. administrations’ policy.

“Today I’ll have the chance to visit the Golan Heights. The simple recognition of this as part of Israel, too, was a decision President Trump made (in 2019) that is historically important and simply a recognition of reality,” he said in Jerusalem.
