US envoy leads moment of silence at Human Rights Council

The top US envoy to the Human Rights Council leads a moment of silence to honor the victims of Hamas’s attacks against Israeli civilians and the people killed in an earthquake in Afghanistan over the weekend.

Ambassador Michele Taylor speaks with a “heavy heart,” she says, following the “horrific attacks carried out by Hamas terrorists on Israeli civilians” starting on Saturday.

“The United States unequivocally condemns these heinous acts of terrorism. We extend our deepest condolences to the families affected and express our solidarity with the people and government of Israel in these trying times,” she tells the council, the UN’s top human rights body, which has faced persistent allegations of anti-Israel bias.
