UNCHR demands Israel to lift Gaza siege, let probe into its attack on Flotilla
UNCHR demands Israel to lift Gaza siege, let probe into its attack on Flotilla
The UN commission for human rights demanded Israel to lift its blockade on the Gaza Strip and invite an independent committee to investigate its deadly raid on the Gaza-bound Freedom Flotilla aid convoy.
Sunday, August 1,2010 02:53

The human rights commission also told Israel to ensure that the Palestinians in the occupied lands enjoy human rights that it had pledged to uphold in the main international human rights treaty and to end discrimination acts against them.

The commission urged Israel to end extrajudicial executions of Palestinians, illegalize torture, end construction of settlements in the occupied lands, stop building the segregation wall cutting off Palestinian lands from other areas, and stop destroying homes as a mass punishment.

It asked Israel to say in its next report due by July 2013 what action it had taken on these and other recommendations.
