JERUSALEM, Israel – For the first time in its history, the United Nations General Assembly established a permanent commission of inquiry into Israel.
The unprecedented UN decision puts Israel under almost perpetual investigation covering sovereign Israel, the West Bank and Gaza.
“No such open-ended investigation has ever been leveled against any other UN member state,” says Hillel Neuer, executive director of the UN watchdog, UN Watch.
Neuer says the idea for the commission started during Israel’s war with Hamas last May.
