UN asks Israel to end unlawful killings in West Bank

New Delhi, Dec 28 (Ajit Weekly News) The UN has urged the Israel to end unlawful killings against the Palestinians, saying that the human rights situation in the occupied West Bank is rapidly deteriorating, media reports said.

“The use of military tactics and weapons in law enforcement contexts, the use of unnecessary or disproportionate force, and the enforcement of broad, arbitrary and discriminatory movement restrictions that affect Palestinians are extremely troubling,” UN Rights Chief Volker Turk said in a statement.

Israel launched a ground offensive inside Gaza on October 27 after Hamas attacked Israel in a surprise attack on October 7 in which 1200 Israelis were killed and over 200 were taken hostage.

Since the outbreak of hostilities between Hamas and Israel, at least 21,110 Palestinians have been killed mostly being children and women while 53,688 Palestinians have been injured.
