'The edge of a new crisis': Syria vows to use 'every possible means' to 'liberate' the Golan Heights as Trump sparks fury in the Middle East by pledging to recognise Israel's sovereignty over highlands

Syria and its allies have condemned Donald Trump's declaration that America should recognise Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights.

The Foreign Ministry in Damascus vowed it would use 'every possible means' to 'liberate' the region and described the US President's statement as a threat to international peace and stability.

It said his comments on Twitter confirm 'the blind bias of the United States to the Zionist entity,' referring to Israel, and added that the statement won't change 'the fact that the Golan was and will remain Arab and Syrian.'

It comes as Russia branded the move 'irresponsible' and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the declaration has brought the region 'to the brink of a new crisis and new tensions.'
