UN rights council to consider call for Israel arms embargo

The UN Human Rights Council will consider a draft resolution on Friday calling for an arms embargo on Israel, citing the 'plausible risk of genocide in Gaza.' If adopted, it would be the first time the UN's top rights body takes a position on the war in Gaza. The resolution condemns Israel's use of explosive weapons in populated areas and demands that Israel prevent genocide. It is brought forward by Pakistan on behalf of 55 UN member states in the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, co-sponsored by Bolivia, Cuba, and the Palestinian mission in Geneva.
