Geneva Convention meeting condemns Israel
Country delegates to the Fourth Geneva Convention reached a consensus yesterday that Israel's building of settlements on occupied Palestinian territory was a violation and those responsible should be brought to justice.
The Fourth Convention binds signatories to protect civilians in times of war.
Israel claims it doesn't apply as Palestine isn't a state and earlier said Switzerland agreeing to hold the meeting was a violation of the country's neutrality.
Members voted by 126 out of 196 to condemn Israel's actions. Israel and the United States did not take part.
