UN rights council passes 5 anti-Israel resolutions

UN rights council passes 5 anti-Israel resolutions
World  - The United Nations Human Rights Council ended its first and longest session of the year Friday by adopting five resolutions critical of Israel's behavior toward the Palestinians.

Among the resolutions passed against the Zionist regime were ones that discussed "human rights in the occupied Syrian Golan," the "right of the Palestinian people to self-determination," the "human rights situation in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem," the "Israeli settlements in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem, and in the occupied Syrian Golan," and "ensuring accountability and justice for all violations of international law in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem."

The resolutions adopted in Geneva include a call to adhere to Resolution 2334, which was passed in late 2016, according to which the Israeli settlements are illegal. The resolution called on world nations to "condemn the expansion of settlements" and "distinguish, in their relevant dealings, between the territory of the Israel regime and the territories occupied since 1967."

Another resolution calls on Israel to refrain from expanding construction and population of the Golan Heights, due to the fact it is an occupied territory.

The five resolutions were presented by the countries of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation under the council's "Item 7" which requires a report on Israeli actions in the West Bank each time the panel convenes.
