(MENAFN - Qatar News Agency) The United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) adopted last night four decisions in favor of Palestine, five against Israel, under the agenda item 7, "Human Rights Situation in Palestine and Other Occupied Arab Territories".



The Geneva-based UNHRC voted in a series of five resolutions condemning Israel, amounting to the greatest number of condemnatory resolutions on a single country: Human rights in the occupied Syrian Golan, The right of the Palestinian people to self-determination, Israeli settlements in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem, and in the occupied Syrian Golan, The grave human rights violations by Israel in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem, Follow-up to the report of the United Nations Independent International Fact-Finding Mission on the Gaza Conflict. The Council demanded that Israel end its occupation of the Palestinian land occupied since 1967, and that it respect its commitments within the peace process toward the establishment of a Palestinian state. It strongly condemns Israel's military operations, including its regular incursions, and calls for their immediate cessation and condemns also indiscriminate rocket and mortar fire from Gaza.



The Israeli envoy, Aharon Leshno-Yaar, said the council was wasting its time criticizing Israel considering other abuses in the region including the stabbing of an Israeli family and bombing in Jerusalem. "Yesterday Hamas fired on Israel and schools were closed so children could stay in bomb shelters. In Yemen protestors were killed, in Syria as well, and in Libya the Government forces were killing Libyan citizens. In Geneva, this council continued to spend its time condemning Israe," Leshno-Yaar said. Ibrahim Khraishi, the Palestinian ambassador in Geneva, countered that Israel's philosophy was "shut up there is a war going on."



He noted that the Palestinian Authority's official position was that Palestine was ready to work together with Israel to investigate the bus bombing in Jerusalem. "The draft resolution was positive and balanced and took into account most of the comments made by colleagues. The resolution had not asked for a coalition to bomb Israelis as in Libya but only to condemn the violence that was going on against international humanitarian law," he said
