GENEVA: The UAE has called on the UN Human Rights Council to adopt a report compiled by the Council's Commission of inquiry on the Gaza Conflict.

Saeed Rashid Al Habsi, Charge d'affaires, UAE Mission to the UN and other International Organisations in Geneva, expressed the UAE's deep indignation at Israel's non-collaboration, as an occupying power, with the Commission.

Delivering the UAE's address at the Human Rights Council's interactive dialogue with Independent Commission of Inquiry on Gaza, Al Habsi noted that this is not the first time that Israel has shown no cooperation with the Council's Commissions set up as a result of resolutions issued by the Council.' This is part of a systematic policy Israel is following which is non-compliance with the UN resolutions and not cooperating frequently with the Council's mechanisms,' he added. The dialogue is part of the 29th regular session of the Human Rights Council which is taking place from 15th June to 3rd July, 2015.

The UN Gaza Inquiry finds that 'the extent of the devastation and human suffering in Gaza was unprecedented.' In the Israeli aggression on Gaza in the summer of 2014, the death toll alone speaks volumes: 2,251 Palestinian civilians were killed, and 11,231 were injured, mostly women and children. A total of 2,358 homes were completely destroyed, 13,644 were partly destroyed, 60 mosques were completely destroyed while 109 others were partly destroyed.

Al Habsi said the report confirms that impunity prevailing in case of serious crimes committed by Israel, the occupying power, remains one of the key factors responsible for perpetuating the conflict and denying the Palestinian victims access to effective mechanisms of justice. – Emirates News Agency, WAM -
