A UN Human Rights Council fact-finding mission on West Bank settlements is set to release its report in Geneva late Thursday morning.

Israel cut its ties with the council when it first ordered the probe last March. Jerusalem refused to cooperate with the three-member mission or to allow it entry into Israel, including into Area C of the West Bank, where the settlements are located.The settlements probe is the sixth council investigation into Israeli activity in the Palestinian territories or on its borders, including in Lebanon and the Gaza Strip.



The most highly publicized council probe was the 2009 Goldstone investigation into Israeli military activity in Gaza in December 2008 and January 2009 under the IDF’s Operation Case Lead.
