The Palestinian Authority on Saturday stepped up its attacks on Israel, holding it responsible for “crimes” against Palestinians by the IDF and settlers.

A statement released in Ramallah accused the Israeli government of providing a cover and legalizing “crimes and violations against innocent Palestinians under the looking eye of the world.”

Noting that 17 Palestinians have been killed and more than 1000 wounded since the beginning of October, the PA government called on the UN Human Rights Council to quickly dispatch a commission of inquiry to the region “to investigate all crimes perpetrated by Israel against our people.”

The government repeated its charge that Israel is carrying out “field executions” against Palestinians and urged the international community to put pressure on Israel to stop its “crimes and violations.”
