Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed young Israelis in the Golan Heights on Tuesday, urging them to populate periphery communities to help secure the future of the country.

At the Israel Conference for Youth in the Golan Heights, Netanyahu stated that, "The Golan Heights is ours, was ours, and will stay ours. And of course if we weren't here, radical Islam would. We all understand the consequences. Therefore, come to the Golan, this is our home and will always be our home."

Netanyahu also added that Israel will never secede from the Golan Heights.
