Volker Turk, the #UN’s High Commissioner for Human Rights, condemned #Israel’s recent use of “explosive projectiles” against #Palestinians during a massacre on 23 February, resulting in 102 injuries and 11 deaths in the #WestBank city of #Nablus.
“I am deeply concerned that scores of #Palestinians, including a boy & 3 older men, were killed & hundreds injured in the #Israeli operation in #Nablus & by airstrikes & rocket attacks between #Israel & #Palestinian armed groups in the #Gaza Strip.”
Turk added that the #Israeli occupation forces fired explosive projectiles, weaponry typically associated with instigating hostilities, at highly populated areas, suggesting disregard for the lives of #Palestinian bystanders to the conflict.
Turk proceeded to call for a halt in the escalation of tensions between #Palestinians and #Israelis, as it is detrimental to the human rights of those residing in the #WestBank.
