Pompeo to make unprecedented visit to Golan Heights

MIKE Pompeo said he will make the first visit by a United States secretary of state to the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights today, after labelling the pro-Palestinian BDS movement an anti-Semitic “cancer”.

Last year, President Donald Trump’s administration made the controversial to decision to recognise Israeli sovereignty over the Golan, which the Jewish state seized from Syria in the Six-Day War of 1967.
