Israel Attends U.N. Human Rights Council in Geneva

Following an 18-month hiatus, Israel appeared today (Tuesday) before the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva to defend her record.

According to a report by AFP, Eviatar Manor, Permanent Representative of Israel to the United Nations in Geneva, addressed the Council saying, "Ensuring human rights is an ongoing process and Israel's appearance here is testimony to our daily effort to uphold the highest standards of human rights.”

Manor reminded the council member of the “difficult and complex security situation” Israel has faced since receiving statehood 1948.

“Israel’s unfair treatment must come to an end,” Manor told the council.
