Ashrawi: Refusal to attend HRC review a 'deliberate insult'

"Israel’s refusal to attend the UN Human Rights Council [HRC] review is reprehensible and constitutes an egregious violation of international and humanitarian law, as well as a deliberate insult to this international body," PLO Executive committee member Hanan Ashrawi said on Wednesday.
Ashrawi called on the international community to hold Israel accountable for its refusal to attend its Universal Periodic Review, which has been delayed till November following Israel's refusal.
Commenting on the postponement, Ashrawi said: "In postponing the review until October, the HRC is setting a dangerous precedent by allowing Israel to flout the will of the international community and get away with its illegal policies and measures that violate the basic human rights of the Palestinian people."
