Palestine summons European envoys over 'no' votes to UN’s motion

Palestine has summoned four European ambassadors over their countries' "no" votes to a resolution at the United Nations to probe Israeli abuses, including during the recent aggression on Gaza.

The ambassadors of Austria, Britain, Bulgaria and the Czech Republic were handed strong-worded letters of protest on Tuesday and requested clarifications by their foreign ministries regarding the votes against pro-Palestine motions at the UN Security Council and the World Health Organization (WHO), Wafa news agency reported.

Palestinian Foreign Ministry Undersecretary Amal Jadou slammed the "no" votes by the four European states as a “green light” to Israel to persist in its aggression and systematic violations of the Palestinian people’s rights.

Such votes reinforce the culture of impunity, giving Israel more chance to consolidate its occupation and perpetuate further crimes of apartheid and persecution which constitute crimes against humanity based on international law, she said.

The Palestinian Foreign Ministry is also expected to summon the German ambassador over its opposition to the same motions.

On Thursday, the UN Human Rights Council agreed to launch an international inquiry into violations committed during the 11-day Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip and “systematic” abuses in the occupied Palestinian territories.
