World Health Organization to Discuss Health Conditions in “Occupied Syrian Golan”


golan-heightsHealth conditions “in the occupied Syrian Golan” will be discussed at this week’s World Health Organization annual assembly in Geneva. Even as tens of thousands of people are being killed in Syria, a WHO document reports that the organization “has no access to the occupied Syrian Golan and thus cannot provide a report on the prevailing health conditions there.”

Israel responded that “The Health Assembly is not the forum to discuss the narrative of an ongoing conflict, nor the place to decide on political matters.” Israel “regards the continuous World Health Assembly’s debate on the ‘health conditions in the occupied Syrian Golan’ as an absurd example of the way the assembly’s agenda is cynically abused.”
