PLO Ambassador to the UN Headquarters in Geneva Ibrahim Khreisheh: “It was saddening and even embarrassing to see that American Secretary of State [Antony Blinken], a high-ranking man, spoke about the need to honor international law and human rights and the ban on deliberately harming civilians and public buildings, and he dedicated a section of his speech to attacking the [UN Human Rights Council Agenda] Item 7, which in his opinion places Israel alone as a special case, and did not relate to any of the atrocities against our Palestinian people.”
