Israel Refuses to Cooperate with UN Fact-Finding Mission
The United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) has assembled a team of experts to investigate the expansion of Israeli settlements in the Occupied Palestinian Territories.
Ma’an News reported on Sunday that the fact-finding committee will begin its investigation in August and plans to release a preliminary report at the end of September. The final report will be submitted in March of 2013. This is according to a report on the Voice of Palestine radio by UNHRC Palestinian representative, Ibrahim Khreisheh.
