Not a single report is expected to address the alleged internment of some 1 million Uyghur and Turkic Muslims in isolated Chinese camps, despite the pleas of multiple human-rights organizations.

Of a list of 79 reports to be dealt with at the upcoming 40th U.N. Human Rights Council meeting, seven will be dedicated to denouncing the State of Israel.

Not a single report is expected to address the alleged internment of some 1 million Uyghur and Turkic Muslims in isolated Chinese camps, despite the pleas of multiple human-rights organizations.

Additional reports will examine Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka and Tunisia, with two reports each for Iran and Syria.

A list of resolutions up for vote is expected to be published soon, with U.N. Watch executive director Hillel Neuer telling The Jerusalem Post that five resolutions against Israel are anticipated.

The UNHRC has yet to publish a list of the resolutions its 47 member states plan to vote on, including those on Israel. Most of its resolutions are based on reports.

U.N. Watch executive director Hillel Neuer estimates that there would likely be about five resolutions against Israel.

Among the reports are one about the blacklisting of businesses who do business with Jews residing in Judea, Samaria, eastern Jerusalem and the Golan Heights, and another about weekly riots conducted by Hamas-led Gaza Arabs on Israel’s border under the auspices of the “March of Return.”
