      The United Nations has warned that Israel’s actions in East Jerusalem “may amount to war crimes” after the Jewish state sought to engage in forced evictions within the annexed section of the occupied Palestinian territory.

      In comments to reporters in Geneva on Friday, the spokesman for the UN high commissioner for human rights, Rupert Colville, urged Israel to “call off all forced evictions” within East Jerusalem amid ongoing violent clashes as Israeli authorities push to evict Palestinian families from the area.

      “We wish to emphasise that East Jerusalem remains part of the occupied Palestinian territory, in which international humanitarian law applies,” Colville said. He also warned that moving civilians from an occupied territory is a criminal offense under international law and “may amount to war crimes.”

      A number of Israel’s allies, including France, Germany, and the UK, have this week called on the country to cease building settlements in the occupied West Bank.

      Another strongly worded letter!

      All governments lie to their citizen's, but only Americans believe theirs.
