WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) issued a statement today after reports that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has asked the United States to recognize Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights. In the last Congress Sens. Cruz and Cotton introduced S.Res.732, a resolution expressing the sense of the Senate that the United States should recognize Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights.

“Israel's northern border has become increasingly dangerous in recent weeks with the discovery of Hezbollah’s terror tunnels and Bashar al Assad’s continued efforts to consolidate control of Syria with the assistance of Iranian shock troops,” Sens. Cruz and Cotton said. “Responding to the threat posed by Iran and its proxies requires ensuring that Israel can defend its territory and its citizens from attacks. To support Israel’s right to self defense, Washington should take the long overdue step of affirming Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights.”
