Times of Israel reported Netanyahu saying at the weekly cabinet meeting:
“This week we mark a year since the US embassy was opened in Jerusalem. We very much appreciate that historic decision by President Trump, just as we very much appreciate his historic decision to recognize Israel’s sovereignty in the Golan Heights.”

“I promised that we would establish a community named after President Trump. I am informing you that we have already located a spot in the Golan where that new community will be established, and that the process has begun.”
This came weeks after US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Israel’s annexation of the occupied Syrian Golan Heights.
