The Israeli army has raised the state of alert in the occupied Golan Heights after the US President Donald Trump announced he would recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the territory, Quds Press reported yesterday.

According to Israeli newspaper Maariv, the army deployed snipers and moved anti-riot ammunition, including tear gas canisters and rubber-coated bullets, to the area.

A spokesman of the Israeli army told Maariv:

“The army and the police are preparing for possible demonstrations in the Syrian side of the Golan Heights.”

Meanwhile, the Israeli news website Wallah reported that the Israeli army is expecting the area to witness “violent riots similar to those in the southern area near the Gaza Strip.”
