Lebanon says US Golan decision undermines peace
Published in Ahram Online on 25 - 03 - 2019

Lebanon says the decision by President Donald Trump to recognize the occupied Golan Heights as Israeli territory undermines any efforts to reach a fair peace and further isolates Israel.
Lebanon's foreign ministry said Monday that the occupied Golan Heights are ``Syrian Arab'' territory and ``no country can falsify history by transferring'' land from one country to another.
Lebanon is technically at war with Israel, which occupied parts of southern Lebanon until it withdrew in 2000. Lebanon says Israel is still occupying Shebaa Farms and Israel considers the Lebanese Hezbollah group a strategic threat.
Trump signed a proclamation Monday recognizing Israel's sovereignty over the occupied Golan Heights. The decision further isolates Israel, Lebanon's foreign ministry said, adding that Israel will only find security with a fair and comprehensive peace.
