U.S., Canada Criticize UNHRC Over Bias Against Israel

The United States and Canada both criticized the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) on Wednesday, in the wake of its intention to launch an investigation into the IDF's operations in Gaza.

Speaking to reporters, Deputy State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said “we do strongly oppose today’s special session at the Human Rights Council and the resulting resolution as the latest in a series of biased, anti-Israel actions at the Human Rights Council.”
