U.N. Warns Israel Not to Attack Courts Amid Weeks of Mass Protests

HeadlineFeb 22, 2023

The U.N. has called on Israel to “pause” plans to gut the judiciary. The move by Benjamin Netanyahu’s extreme-right government has triggered two months of mass protests.

This comes after the U.N. Security Council unanimously approved a statement of opposition to Israel’s illegal expansion of settlements Monday. It’s the first time in over six years the U.S. has agreed to a rebuke of Israel, though advocates denounced the watered-down, nonbinding statement in place of a more consequential resolution.
