The Israeli government decided to resume granting exploration licenses for gas and oil in the Golan Heights, 20 years after deciding to cease for diplomatic reasons.

Former Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin froze the exploration due to negotiations with Syria during the 1990s. Now, National Infrastructure Minister Uzi Landau has decided to resume, and the decision was secretly approved by the Knesset, reported Globes.
