UN-mandated rights inquiry rebukes Israeli regime for seeking “complete control” of occupied Palestine

Source: CNN

“An independent commission of inquiry set up by the UN Human Rights Council after the 2021 Gaza war said Israel must do more than end the occupation of land Palestinians want for a state [sic], according to a report released on Tuesday. ‘Ending the occupation alone will not be sufficient,’ the report said, urging additional action to ensure the equal enjoyment of human rights. It cited evidence saying Israel has ‘no intention of ending the occupation’ and is pursuing ‘complete control’ over what it calls the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem, which was taken by Israel in a 1967 war.” [editor’s note: Most media treat the State of Palestine as aspirational/notional, but already exists, is recognized by most other regimes world-wide, and is a UN observer state and member of e.g. the International Criminal Court – TLK] (06/08/22)
