RNA - Michael Lynk, UN special rapporteur on human rights in the Palestinian territories, told the General Assembly on Wednesday that “the status quo of Israel’s ‘occu-annexation’ is endlessly sustainable without decisive international intervention.”
The UN expert said that “the international community has issued countless resolutions and declarations critical of the never-ending Israeli occupation,” but “the time has long past to match these criticisms with effective consequences.”
“Accountability is the key to opening the titanium cage that is the permanent occupation,” he said.
Lynk lamented that the Israeli occupation has been characterized by “a strong sense of impunity” by the Tel Aviv regime.
