Netanyahu Visits Golan Heights, Warns Israel's Enemies Not to 'Test Us'
“We seek peace but are prepared for any scenario and I wouldn’t suggest to anyone that they test us,” Netanyahu stated.
The Golan Heights dispute remains an apple of discord for Israel and Syria, provoking tit-for-tat strikes in border areas. Israel’s occupation of the western two-thirds of the Golan Heights (known in Syria as Quneitra governorate) prevents the states from signing a peace treaty. Tel-Aviv annexed the disputed area during the Six-Day War in 1967, what has been repeatedly condemned by the UN in 1981 and 2008.
