International recognition of Israel’s sovereignty on the Golan isn’t only an interest of Israel, but of all who want to block Tehran's growing regional influence.
At separate meeting on Thursday with Vice President Pence, Netanyahu discussed U.S. support for Israel at the UN and efforts to secure U.S. recognition of Israeli sovereignty in the Golan Hts., Israeli sources said.
'I can say that there was no surprise by my request,' Netanyahu tells reporters after White House meeting.
None were hurt in the incident, which the Israeli army saw as spillover from Syria's civil war.
Neither Israel nor any other country is intervening to put a halt to Assad’s resumption of control.
Assad's successes may motivate him to take on rebels now in control of the Syrian Golan Heights, leading to potential complications for Israel.
