United Nations: The Human Rights Council of the United Nations on Friday approved a resolution by Pakistan demanding that Israel be held responsible for possible war crimes and crimes against humanity in the Gaza Strip.
According to the British news agency Reuters, in the 47-member Human Rights Council, 28 countries voted in favor of the resolution, 13 abstained and six voted against the resolution. Compliance with this agreement is not mandatory. However, Western countries were divided on this agreement. The United States, Germany, and some other Western countries opposed the resolution, while many abstained and some European countries voted in favor of the agreement.
According to the French news agency AFP, the United Nations Human Rights Council has called on Israel to stop the sale of arms, highlighting the warning of the genocide of Palestinian civilians during the ongoing Israeli aggression in Gaza.
It is the first time the UN’s top human rights body has taken a stand on the bloodiest offensive ever targeting the besieged Palestinian territory.
The text of the resolution calls on countries to stop selling and transferring arms, ammunition, and other military equipment to Israel.
The resolution calls for an end to arms supplies to Israel, among other measures, to prevent “violations of international humanitarian law and human rights”.
The resolution said the International Court of Justice had ruled in January that there was a “threat of genocide” in Gaza.
Pakistan presented the resolution on Friday on behalf of all member countries of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) except Albania. The resolution calls for an “immediate ceasefire” and “emergency humanitarian access and assistance” in Gaza.
