ICJ supports findings of Fact Finding Mission on Israeli settlements

The ICJ today called on the Human Rights Council to take all effective measures at its disposal to halt the Israeli policy on the construction, expansion and encouragement of settlements in the occupied Palestinian territory.

Noting that the policy is in violation of obligations under international law, the ICJ’s statement was delivered in the General Debate under Item 7 of the Human Rights Council’s agenda (human rights situation in Palestine and other occupied Arab territories) during the Council’s 22nd regular session (25 February to 22 March 2013).
