- Five New Countries Vote Against Anti-Israel UN Resolution
The UN World Health Organization voted 96 to 11 on Wednesday for a resolution co-sponsored by the Arab bloc and the Palestinian delegation that singled out Israel over health conditions in the territories. Countries that changed their votes to “no” this year included Brazil, Czech Republic, Germany, Honduras and Hungary.
Hillel Neuer, Executive Director of UN Watch, noted: “There was no agenda item or resolution on any other country, including Syria, where hospitals and medical infrastructure have suffered devastating bombings by Syrian and Russian forces….In reality, Israeli hospitals provide life-saving treatment to Syrians fleeing to the Golan from the Assad regime’s barbaric attacks….Anyone who has ever walked into an Israeli hospital or clinic knows that they are providing world-class health care to thousands of Palestinian Arabs.” (UN Watch)
