Iran envoy urges UN to hold Israeli regime accountable for inhumane policies, unlawful practices

New York, IRNA - An Iranian envoy to the United Nations urged the international body to hold the Israeli regime accountable for all inhumane policies and unlawful practices

The diplomat said that "Israeli regime, in flagrant violation of international law and in total disregard for all relevant United Nations resolutions, continues to violate the fundamental rights and dignity of the Palestinian people and other Arabs living under its occupation. As a result, Palestinians are deprived of their lands and properties, forcibly evicted and subjected to violence, terror, and intimidation. Meanwhile, any right of the Palestinians to self-determination totally have been negated under the title of “one Jewish States”. 
Worse still, under the current challenging circumstances and as the international community focuses on mitigating the severe effects and consequences of COVID-19, the Israeli regime continues to exploit this period to accelerate its illegal settlement activities as well as annexation schemes and further entrench its military occupation. Simultaneously, the inhumane and suffocating blockade on the Gaza Strip continues to deepen the severity of the humanitarian crisis and inflict misery on the Palestinian civilian population there. 
At the regional level, the continued occupation of territories of the occupied Syrian Golan, as well as parts of Lebanon and frequent encroachments against the countries of the region, have seriously endangered peace and security in the region and beyond. Given Israel’s threats to regional and international peace and security, as well as its unlawful and brutal measures against Palestinians, the international community, the United Nations and the Security Council must be fully vigilant towards all of the destabilizing policies and illegal practices of this regime in the volatile region of the Middle East along with their ramifications for international peace and security, and thus hold it accountable for all such inhumane policies and unlawful practices."
