    Background: INTRODUCTION: The Israeli decision to formally annexe the occupied Golan Heights on Monday (14 December) has angered Arab states, and the Palestinians, as well as causing concern in Washington. Israel captured the mountainous region from Syria during the 1967 Middle East war but its occupation has ever been recognised by the Arab world. The Palestinians regard the annexation as evidence of Israel's overall territorial ambitions as the head of their news agency, Ziad Abdel Fatah, explained in the Lebanese capital, Beirut.
