Report: Netanyahu Considering Severing Ties with UNHRC
Prime Minister allegedly says in closed session that UNHRC’s Gaza report has placed its relationship with Israel at risk.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu may sever Israel’s ties with the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) after their inflammatory report over Israel’s conduct during Operation Protective Edge in Gaza, he said Monday.
Netanyahu called the UNHRC “a hypocritical committee” during a closed session, according to Army Radio – prompting a response from former Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman (Yisrael Beytenu).
“As foreign minister, I canceled Israel’s membership in the Human Rights Council,” Liberman challenged. “Why did you change that decision?”
Netanyahu then responded that he will “consider whether to stay in or leave the Human Rights Council.”
