Foreign Ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor commented on the appointment of William Schabas as head of the United Nations Human Rights Council’s probe into the IDF’s action in the past two months.

He said appointing a chairman, "whose opinions and positions against Israel are well known, proved beyond any doubt that Israel cannot expect justice from such a body."

Acoording to Palmor, the Council's report "has already been written and only remains to be signed.”
