Israel unveiled “Trump Heights” on Sunday, a new community named after U.S. President Donald Trump on a contested frontier with Syria. The Golan Heights project is designed to cement ties between Israel and the United States after Trump signed a decree in March at the start of a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, saying the United States recognises Israeli sovereignty over the territory that Israel seized from Syria in the 1967 Middle East war.
