US Envoy for Middle East negotiations Jason Greenblatt released a map of Israel, including the Golan Heights, on social media on Tuesday.

The new map, which includes the Golan Heights as a part of Israel, was added to the US international maps system, according to the tweet. 

“Welcome to the newest addition of our international maps system,” wrote Greenblatt, citing the recent decision by US President Donald Trump to recognize the former Syrian land as a part of Israel.

US President Donald Trump recognized Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights in March, when he tweeted that it is time the US does so.


A few days later Trump signed an official document with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at his side.

The American decision is not shared by the EU or Russia, who view the Golan Heights as occupied Syrian land.
