UNGA demands Israeli pullout from Golan Heights

UNGA demands Israeli pullout from Golan Heights

The UN General Assembly demands an unconditional Israeli withdrawal from the occupied Golan Heights, giving up plans to proclaim Jerusalem the capital of the Jewish State and an immediate start to peace talks with the Palestinians.

The above resolutions were adopted on Friday shortly after Palestine was granted a non-member observer status in the United Nations Organization.

Though non-binding, the resolutions by the UN General Assembly reflect the majority of the world nations’ attitude towards what is going on in the Middle East.

The Golan Heights, once part of Syria, were seized by Israel during the 1967 Six-Day War.
