The UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) adopted, during its 34th session held on Friday in Geneva, four pro-Palestine and anti-occupation resolutions.
The Palestinian Foreign Ministry Riyad al-Maliki revealed that the four adopted resolutions are entitled “Israeli settlements in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem,” The Palestinian people right to self-determination,” “The situation of human rights in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem,” and “Violations of international law in the occupied Palestinian territory.”
The Palestinian draft resolutions were reformulated according to the rules of the international laws in accordance to the Palestinian national demands to hold Israeli leaders accountable for committing war crimes against our people, he said.
Al-Maliki strongly denounced the statements made by Israeli ambassador to the UNHRC, stressing that Israel’s illegal practices on the ground totally violate the international law.
He invited all countries that had voted against the resolutions to review their positions and to stand behind the principles of international law.
He also stressed the urgent need to prosecute Israel for violating international laws and principles, and to provide international protection to the Palestinian people.
