UN Expert Calls for Ban on “Israeli” Settlement Products
By Staff- Agencies
The UN independent expert on human rights in the Palestinian Occupied territories called Wednesday for an international ban on all products made in “Israeli” settlements, as a step to potentially end “Israel’s” occupation.
Michael Lynk told the General Assembly’s human rights committee that the international community should also issue “a clarion call to the United Nations” to complete and release a database “on businesses engaged in activities related to the illegal settlements.”
Lynk said the international community has a responsibility and a legal obligation to compel “Israel” to completely end its occupation and remove barriers to self-determination for the Palestinians.
He further highlighted that the “Israeli” occupation has been characterized by numerous and serious violations of international law, and yet “the international community has displayed great unwillingness to impose any meaningful accountability on “Israel”.”
