US only country to stand with Israel as UNHRC approves Gaza resolution

The United States was the only country to stand with Israel as a majority of the United Nations Human Rights Council voted on Friday to hold the Jewish state accountable for human rights violations during its war with Hamas in Gaza last summer.

“We are troubled that this resolution focuses exclusively on Israel,” US Ambassador to the UN in Geneva Keith Harper said as he explained why his country voted against the motion.

He added that his country was also disappointed “that this council does not acknowledge the violent attacks [by Palestinian armed groups] against Israel.”
