Israel Cuts Ties With UN ''Human Rights'' Council

Israel has severed ties with the UN Human Rights Council after the committee launched an international investigation into Israeli settlements in the West Bank.

Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor said Tel Aviv would prevent the council's fact-finding teams from entering the West Bank to investigate settlement construction.

“We are not working with them anymore,” Palmor said. “We had been participating in meetings, discussions, arranging visits to Israel. All that is over.”

What does that mean "Tel Aviv would prevent ..." Hard to believe that a FM spokesman said that and not Jerusalem.

A, I don't think that was a direct quote from the Israeli spokesman; it was the wording of the news entity (PressTV -- which, I might note, is an IRANIAN news network).
