Netanyahu slams UNHRC for adopting Gaza war resolution while rocket from Sinai hits Israel

July 3, 2015 18:31

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu condemned the UN Human Rights Council on Friday after it ratified a Palestinian-presented resolution on last summer's war in Gaza, saying the body "is not really interested in fact and human rights."

The premier issued his fiery statement, clarifying that it came shortly after a projectile launched from the Sinai Peninsula exploded in southern Israel. In his condemnation of the UNHRC, he mentioned the strike along with brutal Islamic State terrorist attacks in Syria, the atrocities of the ongoing Syrian civil war and Iran's arbitrary executions of minority groups, indicating that the UN body should concentrate on those issues.
