US to register people born in Golan Heights as 'native Israelis'

Politics A- A A+

The US State Department has officially implemented President Donald Trump's decision to recognize the occupied Golan Heights as Israeli territory, registering people born in the land as "native Israelis".

All official documents issued by the State Department, including passports, will reflect the administration's recent decision, reported Israel's Haaretz daily on Thursday.

Previously, official US documents referred to the Golan Heights with a special designation, indicating the territory's occupation by Israel.

The policy is still in place for Palestinian territories such as the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem al-Quds.
