Israel offers to ‘return’ the Golan Heights

Israel has reportedly offered to withdraw from the Golan Heights, the territory conquered by Israeli forces in the 1967 war, in return for full peace with Damascus.

The offer was revealed on Wednesday by Buthaina Shaaban, a Syrian cabinet minister, who said the deal was floated by Ehud Olmert, Israel’s prime minister, in talks with the Turkish government.
