Zahalka: Israeli planning to steal Golan oil

NAZARETH, (PIC)– Jamal Zahalka, an Arab member of the Israeli Knesset, has charged the Israeli government with planning to steal the Syrian Golan Height’s oil and gas resources.

Zahalka, who was commenting on the news report that Israeli energy minister Uzi Landau ordered the start of oil exploration in the occupied Syrian territory, said that the decision is downright robbery.
