They reaffirmed their rejection of the oppressive practices and illegal procedures adopted by the occupation authorities against them.

Trump’s Declaration on Occupied Syrian Golan Mere Ink on Paper

DAMASCUS- All written words throughout history in rejection of occupation and usurpation of lands, every inch of the Golan’s land and the sacrifices by the Syrian people to liberate it from the “Israeli” occupation affirm that it is the beating heart of Syria and it is impossible to Judaize or usurp it.

The Golan has a deep-rooted cultural history since the Palaeolithic (Old Stone Age) as it has been inhabited by the Canaanites, the Assyrians, the Amorites, the Arameans, the Chaldeans, the Nabataeans, the Romans, the Byzantines, and the Arabs .

The US President Donald Trump’s declaration on the occupied Syrian Golan will remain mere ink on paper and without any value, particularly as the UN resolutions ban the recognition of occupation’s sovereignty over the lands it usurps as a result of war.

According to SANA, Historian Mahmoud al-Sayyed at the Antiquities and Museums General Directorate says that the archeological finds affirm that the Golan is an inseparable part of the homeland Syria and that the archeological sites in the Golan are historically linked to the successive civilizations in Syria.
