The Heat: Gaza and Golan Heights

The Heat

Tensions between Israel and Gaza. And more reaction after the U.S. president said Israel can control the Golan Heights.

Earlier this week at the White House, U.S. President Donald Trump met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

President Trump used the occasion to formally recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the long-disputed Golan Heights that Syria wants returned.

Meanhwhile, tensions between Israel and Gaza remain high. The Israeli Prime Minister is warning Gaza of more military action after Palestinian rocket fire into Israel and there are fears of another war.
