The top rivals for Israel’s prime ministership are both in the United States before elections in April.
Military veteran Benny Gantz is a serious contender for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s job, and will want to make a strong impression at the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee gathering on Monday.
But Trump may have already given Netanyahu the upper hand when he recognised the Golan Heights as Israeli territory earlier last Thursday.
Al Jazeera’s Stefanie Dekker reports from the occupied Golan Heights.
