Yesterday, the UN Human Rights Council adopted a resolution in which it decided to launch an independent inquiry into purported violations of international humanitarian and human rights laws in the occupied Palestinian territory, including East Jerusalem. Meeting in Geneva in an emergency session, the Council also strongly condemned the “widespread, systematic and gross violations of international human rights and fundamental freedoms” arising from the Israeli military operations since 13 June, and called for an immediate ceasefire.
