OTD December 14 - Golan Heights
11 / 38

1981: Israel's Knesset passes The Golan Heights Law, extending Israeli law to the area of the Golan Heights, the area captured and occupied by Israel from Syria in the Six-Day War. The move, which was considered annexation by its critics, would be condemned internationally and determined null and void by United Nations Security Council Resolution 497.
