Israel is committing "a crime against humanity" during its offensive in the Gaza Strip, Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki told an emergency session of the UN Human Rights Council on Wednesday.
"Israel is in the process of committing hideous crimes. Israel is destroying residential areas completely. Israel is targeting journalists. Israel has destroyed 2,500 houses. Infrastructure has been destroyed. Israeli forces are targeting Gaza's medical centres. What Israel is doing is a crime against humanity," he said.
