Noor15WASHINGTON (PNIC):-Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu welcomed the US administration’s withdrawal from membership of the UN Human Rights Council on Tuesday over what it labeled as a bias against Israel and a lack of reform.

In a statement released by his office, Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu hailed the US move, branding the council “a biased, hostile, anti-Israel organization that has betrayed its mission of protecting human rights.”

“Israel thanks president Trump, secretary Pompeo and ambassador Haley for their courageous decision against the hypocrisy and the lies of the so-called UN Human Rights Council,” the statement said.

Israeli ambassador to the UN Danny Danon also welcomed the US step, saying in a statement that the US “has proven, yet again, its commitment to truth and justice and its unwillingness to allow the blind hatred of Israel in international institutions to stand unchallenged.”

“The Human Rights Council has long been the foe of those who truly care about human rights around the world,” Danon said.
