    UN rights chief backs calls for inquiry over Gaza killings

    Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein slams killing of 60 Palestinian protesters by Israeli forces as 'wholly disproportionate'.



    The UN human rights chief has slammed Israel's deadly reaction to protests along the Gaza border as "wholly disproportionate", backing calls for an international investigation.

    Opening a special session of the UN Human Rights Council that could set up a commission of inquiry into recent Israeli violence that has resulted in deaths of more than 100 Palestinians in six weeks, Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein warned that "killing resulting from the unlawful use of force by an occupying power may also constitute wilful killings, a grave breach of the Fourth Geneva Convention."

    He went on to say that Israel has systematically deprived Palestinians of their human rights, with 1.9 million in Gaza "caged in a toxic slum from birth to death".

    Very clearly ' Israel' must be brought to justice- along with its accomplices.
    Prosemitism is racist.
