77. In any discussion of the question of human rights, the Committee must not forget the suffering of the Palestinians living in the Occupied Territories, who were subjected to human rights violations at the hands of the Israeli occupying forces, particularly after recent discussion by the Human Rights Council of the report of the United Nations Fact Finding Mission on the Gaza Conflict led by Justice Richard Goldstone.
