UN officially requests Israeli occupation to leave Syrian Golan

SANAA, Dec. 4 (YPA) – The United Nations General Assembly has officially asked the Israeli occupation entity to leave the occupied Syrian Golan Heights after adopting a resolution voted by the member states.

Ninety-one countries voted in favor of the resolution demanding that the occupation leave the Golan, while nine members rejected it and 65 abstained.
The resolution demands that the occupation leave all occupied Syrian territories in the Golan until the line of June 4, 1967, in implementation of the UN Security Council resolution.
The General Assembly considered Israel’s decision of 14 December 1981, by which it extended its rule and imposed its laws in the occupied Syrian Golan, to be null and void.

On 15 November, the General Assembly adopted a resolution calling on the Israeli occupation to “cease the exploitation of natural resources in the Palestinian territories, including East of al-Quds, and the occupied Syrian Golan.”
