Kuwait backs OIC call for Rights special session

GAZA CITY, May 20, (Agencies): Kuwait strongly supports the call of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to present human rights violations in the occupied Palestinian territories in a Human Rights Council special session, said Kuwaiti Permanent Representative to the UN and other international organizations in Geneva, Ambassador Jamal Al-Ghunaim Thursday. In a statement to KUNA, ambassador Al-Ghunaim affirmed that the session, which will be held on May 27, will deal with the grave violations that the Palestinians were subjected to during the recent Israeli aggression, whether in the Gaza Strip, the West Bank or East Jerusalem. He noted that Kuwait and in cooperation with other countries was able to mobilize the required quorum to hold that special session, which will be an opportunity to show and present Israeli violations and to prevent further exacerbation of the humanitarian conditions of the Palestinian people. The special session will be the ninth held by the Human Rights Council to discuss the grave Israeli violations in the occupied territories, including East Jerusalem, since the council’s activities were launched in 2006.
