The IDF seized the Golan Heights in 1967, and that makes it the "occupying power". Nothing that Israel has done since then has altered that status, precisely because an occupying power is NOT entitled to unilaterally claim occupied territory for itself. That Israel claims it ""MUST"" have this land or that it **DESERVES** this land matters not at all; it is an occupier, and occupiers are not entitled to shoot down unarmed civilians who are protesting against that occupation.
