In august 2006, Prof. John Dugard, Special UN Rapporteur for the human rights situation in Palestine, addressing the United Nations Human Rights Council on the 5th of July, condemned the current zionist violations of international law in Palestine. According to the UN report :
"In Gaza, people were without water, food was scarce and medicines were running out, he said, adding that Operation "Summer Rains," as Israel had "cynically labelled" its siege of Gaza, offended the prohibition on collective punishment. It likewise violated the prohibition on "measures of intimidation and terrorism" contained in Article 33 of the Fourth Geneva Convention, while the arrest of Hamas Cabinet ministers and legislators seemed to constitute the "taking of hostages" prohibited in Article 34."
