US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley says that in prior years the US abstained from voting ‘no’ on the annual UN resolution, “The Occupied Syrian Golan.” This resolution repeatedly condemns Israel and it’s “occupation” of the Golan Heights.
This year is different. Here is why the US voted ‘no’: “Given the resolution’s anti-Israel bias, as well as the militarization of the Syrian Golan border, and a worsening humanitarian crisis, this year the United States has decided to vote no on the resolution.”

The Jerusalem Post reports that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday that the Golan Heights is a part of Israel and will remain under its sovereignty forever.
