A rally against US President Donald Trump's recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the occupied Syrian Golan Heights was held in Damascus on Tuesday.

People, including children, waved Syrian flags and held banners depicting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, protesting against the move.

“We all know that Trump is the world's bully, so he has no right to decide for other people's lands,” said one of the protesters.

"Such a resolution isn't even worth the ink it was written with. Our land in Golan is Syrian and it shall remain Syrian," agreed another demonstrator.

On Monday, March 25, US President Donald Trump signed a declaration recognising Israel's sovereignty over the occupied Golan Heights.

Trump announced his intention via Twitter on March 21, prompting heavy criticism from Syrians and their officials. Permanent Representative of the Syrian Arab Republic to the UN Bashar Jaafari also said that Trump's recognition was 'nothing more than a recipe for more wars.'
