Palestine says UN rights never given to Palestinians

Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad Al-Maliki (pictured) on Sunday asserted that the fundamental rights enshrined in the UN Declaration of Human Rights have never been fully granted to Palestinians.

In commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the declaration, Al-Maliki emphasized the continuous violation of Palestinian rights, with a particular emphasis on the right to life. Furthermore, the foreign affairs ministry urged the UN to implement a mechanism compelling Israel to adhere to international humanitarian law and safeguard civilians in the Gaza Strip.

Al-Maliki's comments come after the United States on Friday blocked a UN resolution calling for a ceasefire in Gaza.
