A UN resolution has singled out Israel as the world’s only violator of “mental, physical and environmental health” and commissioned a delegation to report on “the health conditions in the occupied Palestinian territory” and in “the occupied Syrian Golan.”
The United Kingdom, France, and Germany were among 107 countries that voted for the proposal during this week’s gathering of the World Health Organization (WHO) in Geneva. Eight countries voted against the resolution and eight abstained, while 58 other countries taking part in the assembly were absent for the vote.
The entire European Union (EU) membership voted as a block to support the motion of condemnation against Israel. Watch video below of the UK casting its vote:
