Israel announces new Golan Heights settlement named after Trump

“We are proud that we have the opportunity to establish a new settlement and to give thanks to a great friend,” Netanyahu told a celebratory cabinet meeting at the site. “We will continue to grow and develop the Golan for all of our citizens — Jews and non-Jews together.”…

At Sunday’s unveiling, the Israeli leader went on to thank Trump for a number of pro-Israel decisions — while also joining the US in blaming Iran for the attack on tankers in the Gulf of Oman last week.

“President Trump did it [with the Golan], he also did it with Jerusalem, he did it with the transfer of the embassy, he did it with the exit from the Iran nuclear deal, he does it now with the strong stand against the aggression of Iran in the Gulf of Oman, in the Persian Gulf, and in the entire region,” he said.
