Report: Israel criticized China following US pressure

Israel supported a statement criticizing China at the UN Human Rights Council after being pressured to do so by the Biden administration, US and Israeli officials told Axios’ Barak Ravid on Tuesday.

This is a significant policy change from Israel’s newly inaugurated government.
