A UN official has said that any country assisting Israel with military hardware or supporting the siege on Gaza are accomplices to the Israeli violations of the international law.

Richard Falk, the Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights on Palestinian lands, said that the UN is committed to protecting civilians who are the victims of grave violations of the international humanitarian laws regardless of the country responsible for those violations.

He called on all UN member countries to condemn Israel and to agree on a new method for protecting the Palestinian people.

The UN official underlined that the ongoing Israeli aerial raids on Gaza represented the worst violation of the international humanitarian laws as embedded in the Geneva agreements.

Falk listed some of those Israeli violations such as the collective punishment of one and a half million people living in the Strip and targeting civilians in addition to the disproportionate military strikes.
