Israel slammed Switzerland on Thursday for convening a special meeting of the High Contracting Parties of the Fourth Geneva Convention next week expected to severely censure Israel for its actions in the West Bank and Gaza.

Switzerland, the Depository of the Fourth Geneva Convention, called the meeting following a request put forward by the Palestinians after their joining the convention in April following the breakdown of the US-backed Israeli-Palestinian negotiations.

The meeting is scheduled for December 17.
