53rd Session of the Human Rights Council – Agenda Item 7 – JIJ’s StatementThursday 13/07/2023

On the 10th of July, the UN Human Rights Council held a session on Item 7 of its agenda. This Item is defined as the “Human rights situation in Palestine and other occupied Arab territories.” This is, in fact, the only country-specific item on the agenda and has served as a pretext to issue a disproportionate amount of resolutions against Israel.
