UN health body ignores Syrians, unless they live in the Golan

The annual World Health Assemby met in Geneva last week to assess the world’s health situation, adopt measures and exchange best practices. As is customary with all UN bodies, only one resolution was adopted against a particular country and that country was Israel.

With a vote of 56 in favor, 6 against (Israel, United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Micronesia) and 48 abstantions (including all of the EU), the WHA adopted a resolution on “the  health conditions in the occupied Palestinian territory including east Jerusalem, and in the occupied Syrian Golan.”

Of course, there was no resolution on any other health emergency around the world, let alone in Syria, where dozens of innocent civilians are brutally murdered and denied basic healthcare every day for many months now. Unless of course, they live in the Golan, where Israel can be blamed.
