UN to Israel: Free Palestinian prisoners, lift Gaza blockade

E-mail Print PDF

UN Human Rights Council on Tuesday called on Israel to lift its blockade on the Gaza Strip, Israel Radio reported.

After two days of discussions, the council, which consists of 47 member states, passed a list of 99 'recommendations' of gestures for Israel to make to ease Palestinian suffering, including freeing all prisoners.

The US did not take part in the discussion, as it says the body discriminates against Israel.
