Opposition joins Netanyahu in lobbying against anti-Israel resolution in UNHRC

Leading opposition MKs joined Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday in intensive efforts to lobby the world’s “reasonable countries” against supporting an anti-Israel resolution to be brought to the UN Human Relations Council on Thursday.

Netanyahu met with foreign ambassadors stationed here, including a number of those whose countries are represented on the 47-member UNHRC, and both Tzipi Livni (Zionist Camp) and Yair Lapid (Yesh Atid) wrote letters to the ambassadors.

The Palestinian draft resolution, based on the report issued last week by the UNHRC’s committee that investigated last year’s war in Gaza, condemns Israel and calls for the the full implementation of the report. The UNHRC  report on Operation Protective Edge concluded that both Israel and Hamas may have committed war crimes, made no distinction between them, and placed most of the onus on Israel.
