Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has slammed a decision by the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) to endorse a report accusing Israel and Hamas in war crimes during last summer's war in the Palestinian enclave.
"The UNHRC is not interested in the facts and is not really interested in human rights," Netanyahu on Friday said in a statement released by his office, Xinhua reported.
He accused the UNHRC for condemning Israel "for no fault of its own, for acting to defend itself from a murderous terrorist organisation." He added that Israeli soldiers "act in accordance with international law".
The resolution to back the report was adopted with strong European support, with 41 council members, including Germany, France, and Britain, voting in favour the report, while only the US voting against. India, Kenya, Paraguay, Ethiopia, and Macedonia abstained.
