Palestinian Women National Coalition of 1325 at the HRC

29th

During today’s HRC session, in which the report of the UN Commission of Inquiry, dealing with the Israeli war on Gaza during summer 2014, will be discussed, Secretariat partners, along with members of the Palestinian Women National Coalition of 1325, issued a statement on the accountability for human rights violations in Palestine.

In the Statement, on behalf of the Women’s Affairs Technical Committee (WATC), Palestinian Working Woman Society for Development (PWWSD), MIFTAH, Women Studies Center, Women’s Center for Legal Aid and Counseling (WACLAC), the CSOs highlighted the fact that dozens of resolutions were adopted by the HRC respecting the human rights situation in Palestine, but nonetheless: “there has been no corresponding translation into real obligations by member states to ensure that Israel, the occupying power, is held accountable for these violations."

The full statement, including the set of recommendations, can be accessed here.
