Zionist regime most condemned UN member in 2018

Tehran, Jan 2, IRNA – The United Nations General Assembly slamed Israel at least 20 times for mistreating Palestinians and building illegal settlements, wrote Anadolu Agency.

The Zionist regime was the most condemned member of the UN in 2018 with the General Assembly passing at least 20 resolutions against Tel Aviv for human rights abuses, illegal settlements on occupied Palestinian territory and its continued occupation of eastern parts of the Holy Quds (Jerusalem), the Turkish news agency said.

It added that at least six resolutions passed at the end of November sought to draw attention to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, while a separate resolution passed in December renewed condemnation of the US's unilateral recognition of the Holy Quds as the Zionist regime's capital.

Also, a US-led effort to condemn Hamas failed to gain sufficient traction within the General Assembly.

The resolution was spearheaded by Nikki Haley, the then US's UN envoy. She said the UN has condemned Israel at least 500 times over the years.
