Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is touring a Jewish settlement in the Israeli-occupied West Bank on the occasion of his first visit by a senior U.S. official. A trip to Psagot Mr. Pompeo said a year later that the settlements were not in line with international law, which had long since changed the U.S. position. The statement angered Palestinians who oppose settlements located on land claiming to be a future independent state. Mr. Pompey will later make a similar visit to the heights of the occupied Golan. President Donald Trump last year officially recognized Israel’s sovereignty over the strategic highlands, which Israel annexed from Syria in the 1967 Middle East war and in 1981.
