What Trump's Golan Heights proclamation means for Israel and Mideast peace

President Donald Trump shocked the world again, with another foreign policy move this week. Trump dramatically changed US policy regarding Israel and the Arab world since being elected.

But on Monday, he signed a proclamation officially recognizing Israel’s annexation of the Golan Heights, which it captured from Syria in 1967 and has occupied ever since.

The move is yet another rejection by the Trump administration of decades of US policy. Some view it as a boosting for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, ahead of what will be his tightest re-election contest yet.

After signing, Netanyahu said that this proves you can keep occupied lands. Here is a quick breakdown what this means for all parties involved.
