Netanyahu says site found in Golan for community to be named after Trump
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says a site has been found in the occupied Golan Heights for a new Israeli community that will be named after US President Donald Trump.
“I promised that we would establish a community named after President Trump. I would like to inform you that we have already selected a site on the Golan Heights where this new community will be established, and we have started the process,” Netanyahu said at the start of the weekly cabinet meeting, The Times of Israel reported.
He says he will bring a proposal to break ground on the community for a cabinet vote once the next government is formed.
Netanyahu announced last month he would name a town in the Golan after Trump, in recognition of the US president’s of the occupied area as Israeli territory.
