UN investigator: Israeli 'settlements' amount to a war crime

Michael Lynk, the UN’s human rights investigator, on Friday lashed at out Israel, saying that Jewish communities in eastern Jerusalem and Judea and Samaria amount to a “war crime”, while calling on countries to inflict a cost on Israel for its “illegal occupation”.

Lynk, the UN “special rapporteur on human rights in the occupied Palestinian territory”, made the comments during a session of the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) and was quoted by Reuters.
