An Israeli cabinet minister on Sunday said the government has approved plans to build a new illegal settlement in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights named after US President Donald Trump.
Settlements Minister Tzipi Hotovely wrote on Facebook that her ministry will start preparations for Ramat Trump – Hebrew for “Trump Heights” – to house 300 families.
The Jewish settlement is currently known as Bruchim and is more than 30 years old and has a population of 10 people.
More:Israel captured the Golan Heights from Syria in the 1967 Middle East war and annexed it in 1981.
At a cabinet meeting on Sunday, Netanyahu said Israel would “begin practical steps in establishing the community of Ramat Trump on the Golan Heights, Israel’s sovereignty over which was recognized by President Trump”.
