Israel on Monday called for an end to the UN Human Rights Councils "obsessively biased" investigations into its actions during Operation Cast Lead, Reuters reported.

A bloc of Islamic countries replied that the UNHRC must continue to apply pressure on Israel to make them halt there "aggression" in the region.

Israel's UN envoy to Geneva Aharon Leshno Yaar said during a council discussion that Operation Cast Lead was not unprovoked, but rather came "in response to years of attacks by Hamas terrorists."

He added that the UNHRC "has continually been one-sided and obsessively biased....It did not matter that steps were taken by Israel to protect its citizens while limiting damage whenever possible to Palestinian civilians."
