UN “Deeply Concerned” At Escalation In Israeli-Palestinian Violence

Geneva, Switzerland: (HRNW)  The United Nations rights office said Tuesday it was “deeply concerned” over the escalation of violence in the occupied Palestinian territories, east Jerusalem and Israel.
“We condemn all violence and all incitement to violence and ethnic division and provocations,” spokesman Rupert Colville told reporters in Geneva.

He said Israeli security forces must allow the freedom of expression, association and assembly.

“No force should be used against those exercising their rights peacefully,” said the spokesman from the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.

When use of force is necessary, it should comply fully with international human rights standards, he added.
