UN Golan Resolution
April 17, 2000

The United Nations' Human Rights Commission has adopted a resolution calling on Israel to stop expanding its settlements on the occupied Syrian Golan Heights.

The resolution comes only four days after Israel announced it was lifting restrictions on building Jewish settlements on the plateau -- occupied by the Israeli army for more than thirty years.

The Geneva-based body also called on the Israeli government to allow those displaced by the occupation to return home and not to impose Israeli identity cards on the Syrian population.

An Israeli diplomat said the resolution would not help peace talks between the two countries.

Meanwhile, around two-thousand Druze residents of the Golan Heights have staged a demonstration to mark Syrian independence day.
