U.N. human rights expert resigns after Israel refuses to let him enter occupied Palestine

U.N. human rights expert resigns after Israel refuses to let him enter occupied Palestine -
The United Nations monitor of human rights in the occupied Palestinian territories has announced that he’s “reluctantly” resigning because the Israeli government won’t grant him access to areas he needs to survey for his job.
“Unfortunately, my efforts to help improve the lives of Palestinian victims of violations under the Israeli occupation have been frustrated every step of the way,” said Makarim Wibisono, the U.N. Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories.
Wibisono submitted his resignation to the president of the U.N. Human Rights Council on Monday. It will become effective on March 31.
