UN Human Rights Chief condemns Israel Military's Disproportionate Response to Protesting Palestinians

  • Senior human rights official of United Nations, Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein, criticized Israel by saying the Zionist country’s military hardly tried to minimize casualties during week-long protest of the Palestinians along Israel-Gaza border. Zeid categorically mentioned the gross imbalance in the casualties in either side. While 60 Palestinians are reportedly killed and thousands more injured, only one Israeli soldier is reported to be slightly wounded by a stone. He told special session of the UN human rights council the gross “contrast in casualties on both sides”, suggesting “a wholly disproportionate response”. The concerned council voted in favor of setting up a commission for inquiring into Monday’s bloody violence, which left 60 Palestinians dead.
