NEW YORK, -- Richard Falk, the UN coordinator of human rights in the occupied Palestinian territories, has lashed out at the Israeli decision to deport tens of thousands of Palestinian citizens from the West Bank at the pretext their presence there was "illegitimate".

Falk in a radio statement published on the UN website said that the latest Israeli army decision in the West Bank was in viorlation of the international humanitarian law and human rights.

He said that such a decision does not respect the rights of residents in occupied lands, who should be protected by the occupying power.

The UN official also noted that the article 49 in the fourth Geneva Convention prohibits banishment of individuals from occupied lands.
