The UN General Assembly passed a resolution urging Israel to vacate the occupied Golan Heights, as reported by Sarbaz.kz citing TASS.

The resolution's co-authors included Egypt, the UAE, Syria, Qatar, Iraq, Algeria, and others. The resolution comprises eight points. One of the demands is for Israel to "withdraw from all the occupied Syrian Golan Heights to the lines of June 4, 1967, in accordance with the relevant Security Council (SC) resolutions."

The document also reflects concerns by countries regarding Israel's continued presence in the Golan Heights, despite previously adopted resolutions by the UN General Assembly and the UN Security Council. Of particular note is UN SC Resolution 497 from 1981, urging the reversal of the law establishing Israel's jurisdiction over the Golan Heights.

Kazakhstan supported the resolution, joining 91 countries including Russia, Saudi Arabia, China, and India. Eight nations, including Israel, the US, and the UK, voiced opposition to the document. Additionally, 62 countries abstained.

The Golan Heights remain a disputed territory captured by Israel during the Six-Day War in 1967. In 1981, Israel enacted a law extending its jurisdiction over the entire Golan Heights. However, Israel's actions were deemed invalid by the UN Security Council.
