Hundreds of protesters participated in a rally in the City of Baath in Syria’s Golan Heights region of Quneitra, on Tuesday, protesting against the US decision to recognise Israeli sovereignty over the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

The demonstrators held Syrian and Palestinian flags as well as banners reading "Golan is Syrian."

On Monday, US President Donald Trump signed a declaration recognising Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights, a territory the Israeli state captured from Syria in 1967. Israel subsequently annexed the Golan Heights in 1981, in a move that was not recognised internationally.
