Israel's Annexation Plans 'Illegal', Says UN Rights Chief


Israel's aim to annex parts of the occupied West Bank was clearly "illegal", the UN's human rights chief said on Monday, warning that the consequences could be "disastrous".

"Annexation is illegal. Period," Michelle Bachelet said in a statement, adding that "the shockwaves of annexation will last for decades, and will be extremely damaging to Israel, as well as to the Palestinians".

Although she says "Annexation is illegal. Period" Did she say the same with regards the Russian annexation of Crimea. Of course not.
