Secretary Pompeo to Visit Israel Next Week

His itinerary includes the West Bank and Golan Heights.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will make a historic visit to the Golan Heights and an Israeli settlement in the West Bank during a visit to Israel next week… firsts by a top American diplomat.

The international community considers both territories to be “illegally occupied” by Israel, though President Trump has recognized Israel’s sovereignty in the Golan Heights.

The secretary’s planned visit to the two sites appears to be intended to highlight the Trump Administration’s policy shifts regarding Israel. The visit follows the Administration’s recent decision to remove restrictions on U.S. investing in various projects being carried out in Israeli settlements.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Pompeo and those traveling with him to be safe in their visits to the Golan Heights and West Bank.
  • For the continued positive relationship between Israel and the United States.
  • For the president’s administration as it continues to pursue peace in the Middle East.
