Golan Regional Council (Hebrew: מועצה אזורית גולן, Arabic: مجلس الجولان الإقليمي) is a regional council that supervises regional services to Israeli settlements located on the Golan Heights. It is made up of 18 moshavim, 10 kibbutzim, and 4 community settlements. The council headquarters is in the town of Katzrin. The current Head of Council is Haim Rokach.[1]

The Golan Heights were captured by Israel from Syria in the Six-Day War of 1967 and Israeli law was imposed there in 1981. They are internationally recognized as Syrian territory occupied by Israel. The settlements in the Golan are illegal under international law.
