U.N. Rights Body Criticizes Israeli Settlement Expansion Into Golan Heights

According to a report by Reuters, on Friday, the UN Human Rights Council criticized Israeli settlement expansion into the occupied Syrian Golan Heights, just one day after US President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Israeli sovereignty over the long-disputed territory.

The UN council adopted an annual resolution on the Golan Heights, brought by Pakistan on behalf of the Organization of the Islamic Conference, with 26 states in favor, 16 against and 5 abstentions.
