Human Rights Council convenes a Special Session on abuses committed in Iraq by ISIL

The Human Rights Council holds its twenty-second Special Session on the human rights situation in Iraq in light of abuses committed by the so-called Islamic state in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and associated groups.

The UN Deputy High Commissioner for Human Rights in her address to the Council expressed concern at the systematic and intentional attacks on civilians during the current conflict that could amount to war crimes and crimes against humanity.

In a resolution, the Council requests the UN Human Rights Office to dispatch a fact-finding mission to Iraq to investigate the violations.
