The Senate “is calling on the U.N. Human Rights Council to revoke a report that accused Israel of war crimes after the study’s author retracted his conclusions,” the AP reports.
In a unanimous vote late Thursday, the Senate backed a non-binding resolution sponsored by Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., and James Risch, R-Idaho, pressing for the council to rescind the report. Richard Goldstone, who wrote the study, has backtracked on his claims.
The Senate resolution also calls on Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to address the damage to Israel’s reputation caused by the report.
It’s S.RES. 138.
