    (ANSAmed) - TEL AVIV, JUNE 11 - The inauguration of a town in the Golan Heights to be named after US President Donald Trump, which was scheduled to take place on Wednesday, has been postponed with the date to be determined, according to media sources and confirmed by the office of the Golan Regional Council.

    In April, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced the decision to rename the small Jewish village of Kela Alon after the US president, following the US administration's recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights, which Israel captured from Syria in the 1967 Six-Day War.

    Netanyahu was scheduled to take part in Wednesday's inauguration ceremony together with US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman.

    In a statement, the Golan Regional Council said the reasons for the postponement are tied to "the dissolution of the Knesset, governmental circumstances, and legal questions beyond our control".(ANSAmed).
