UNHRC adopted report on Israel flotilla raid
Dwyer Arce at 12:00 AM ET

On September 29, 2010, the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) agreed to adopt a report criticizing Israel's raid of a Gaza-bound flotilla and finding the country committed various violations of human rights and international humanitarian law. The UNHRC also adopted the conclusions relating to judicial remedies and reparations and called on the parties involved to abide by these recommendations, which included providing medical and psychological care to those who were tortured during the raid. The UNHRC recommended that the report be considered by the UN General Assembly. The resolution was passed by a vote of 30-1, with 15 abstaining.
