 UNGA Renews Call on Zionist Occupation to Comply with Resolutions on Occupied Syrian Golan

 NEW YORK, (ST)- The United Nations has renewed its call on Israel to comply with UN resolutions relating to the occupied Syrian Golan, particularly resolutions No. 497 for the year 1981 which considers the Israeli occupation’s decision to impose its laws and jurisdiction on the occupied Syrian Golan as null and void.

The UN General Assembly yesterday overwhelmingly adopted a resolution on occupied Golan Heights urging Israel’s occupying authority to immediately give up its Golan annexation decision. The resolution considers that “all the legislative and administrative measures and procedures adopted or to be adopted by Israel aiming to change the legal or the demographic character of the occupied Syrian Golan  as null and void and as a blatant violation of international law and the Geneva accord on protecting civilians at war time.”

The resolution also called on Israel to stop imposing the Israeli citizenship and identity on the Syrian citizens in occupied Golan and to halt its oppressive measures against the people there.

The resolution condemned Israel’s violation of the Geneva Convention relating to protecting civilians at war time and renewed its call on the UN member states not to recognize any anti-international law Israeli procedures or measures in occupied Golan.
