"We will work with fellow Arab countries and the global community to contain the expected repercussions of this decision in the various regional and worldwide forums", Jhinaoui told Arab foreign ministers at a meeting in Tunis.

Arab League chief Ahmed Aboul Gheit (L) and Tunisia's Foreign Minister Khemaies Jhinaoui (R) attend a preparatory meeting for foreign ministers in Tunis, March 29, 2019.

Hassan Rouhani said Iranians too "should resist and that way gain victory" over the US and Israel.

After being frequently attacked from the area, Israel conquered Syria's Golan Heights during the Six-Day War in 1967, and annexed it in 1981. Until now, no member of the global community has officially recognized Israeli sovereignty in the area.

The United States' decision to recognize the Golan Heights as Israeli territory was well coordinated in advance, and the State Department was ready for the announcement, the department's Deputy Spokesperson Robert Palladino told reporters on Thursday. Syria and many Arab states have denounced Trump's move.

Tunisia now holds the rotating presidency of the Arab League.

A man in southern Turkey was taken on a wild ride after strong winds lifted him - and the umbrella he was holding onto - nearly 13 feet in the air.

Iran's ballistic missiles pose a threat to regional and worldwide security, according to al-Assaf.

Israel has conducted hundreds of strikes against Iranian targets in Syria in recent years, although there has been a significant decrease following an Israeli strike in September that resulted in Syrian forces downing a Russian plane, killing 15 Russian crew members.

Iran has denied posing any such threats.

Saudi Arabia is leading a Sunni Muslim coalition that intervened in 2015 in Yemen's war against the Houthis to restore the internationally recognised government ousted from power.

Syria's membership of the Arab League had been suspended since the country descended into violence in 2011 after Arab Spring protests.

On the other hand, the Kingdom is working to unify the position of the Syrian opposition before sitting at the negotiating table with the regime, to reach a political solution that guarantees security and stability, in the country.
