Israel rebuked widely at UN Human Rights Council for abuses against Palestinians

During a heated Human Rights Council meeting in Geneva on Tuesday, Israel faced its third Universal Periodic Review, which examines the rights records of each of its subjects and produces recommendations.
South Africa took the lead in criticizing Tel Aviv, describing it as the world’s only “apartheid” entity. “We remain deeply concerned at the denial of the right of self-determination to the Palestinian people, in the absence of which no other human right can be exercised or enjoyed,” the South African delegate said.
