MK Otniel Schneller (Kadima) criticized Friday the UN Human Rights Council's appointment of a team of international experts to investigate Israel's May 31 raid on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla in which nine pro-Palestinian activists were killed.

Schneller stated that the only thing the UNHRC should be investigating is the Hamas for kidnapping IDF soldier Gilad Schalit and keeping him prisoner in Gaza.

"I would expect the UNHRC to do its job and worry about human rights. Gilad Schalit is being held as a prisoner in violation of all international laws. The UN should investigate the effectiveness of its committees in building trust and promoting peace in the Middle East."
