The Palestinian Authority on Tuesday criticized US Secretary of State John Kerry for defending Israel at the United Nations Human Rights Council.

On Monday, Kerry accused the Council of being obsessed by allegations of Israeli abuses and said the US would defend Israel against efforts to isolate it. Kerry’s remarks came during a speech to the Council in Geneva.

In response, the PA Foreign Ministry called on Kerry to stop dealing with Israel as if it were a state “above the law.” The ministry said that Kerry’s remarks contradicted the principles and mission of the Human Rights Council.
