Israel must pull all settlers: UN

Israel must pull all settlers: UN
Israel must immediately stop all settlement activity and start to withdraw its settlers from the Palestinian territories, a United Nations report said yesterday.
"Israel must ... cease all settlement activities without preconditions (and) must immediately initiate a process of withdrawal of all settlers" from the occupied territories, a UN fact-finding mission concluded.
Because of the settlements, Palestinians' human rights "are being violated consistently and on a daily basis," the three independent experts said in a report commissioned by the UN's Human Rights Council last March.
