I'M SHAMED OF BEING AN EUROPEAN CITIZEN.

A resolution, approved in Geneva on Monday, condemning Israel’s military offensive in Gaza has been adopted by the UN Human Rights Council.

 

The resolution said Israel’s operation had "resulted in massive violations of human rights of the Palestinian people".

 

It  "strongly condemns the ongoing Israeli military operations (...) which have resulted in massive violations of human rights of the Palestinian people and systematic destruction of the Palestinian infrastructure".

 

Remember: until today (12th January) more than 900 Palestinians have died, almost a third of them children, and a further 4,100 have been wounded. At least 25,000 have been displaced due to the ongoing bombardment, but are unable to flee the overcrowded territory as crossing points remain closed.

 

The resolution passed by 33 votes to one (Canada), with 13 abstentions (all European Union countries).

 

The US  took no part in the debate.
