Mufti of the Republic, Sheikh Abdel Latif Derian, on Tuesday said that the Golan Heights - currently occupied by Israel -- was a Syrian Arab territory, condemning the US decision to recognize Israeli sovereignty over the region.
"This is a blatant violation of the United Nations charter and international resolutions," the Mufti exclaimed.
He warned against neglect of Lebanon's law vis-A�-vis the country's Israeli-occupied Shebaa farms and Kfarshouba hilltops.
The mufti also blasted the Israeli aggression against Gaza Strip, urging the Arab world to support "the Palestinian people who suffer pain of such genocides."
