The U.N. Commission on Human Rights in Geneva is slated to hear a Palestinian- proposed resolution next week that the Israeli Foreign Ministry criticizes as “very radical,” according to the Israeli daily Ha’aretz. The resolution states that Israel’s actions in the West Bank and Gaza Strip are war crimes, citing “the intentional and systematic killing of women and children,” the “assassinations of Palestinian figures,” and collective punishment like closures, blockades and the bombing of residential areas.
