Gaza Needs ‘More Than Statements’ from UN to Stop Israeli Violence - Historian

The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights reproached Tel Aviv’s response to a UN report last week that found Israel had breached the human rights of Gazans in its response to protests there. However, a historian and activist told Sputnik Wednesday that ending Palestinian suffering requires action, not tepid statements.

Sputnik reported last week that the UN Commission of Inquiry's February 28 report found that, by using live ammunition to suppress the Great March of Return protests on the border between Gaza and Israel, Tel Aviv gave the Human Rights Council "reasonable grounds to believe that… Israeli soldiers committed violations of international human rights and humanitarian law."

Tel Aviv blasted the commission's findings, with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu saying, "The council is setting new records for hypocrisy and mendacity out of an obsessive hatred of Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East."
