(MENAFN - Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) Monday approved a resolution demanding Baghdad to bring to justice militants of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) for violating international humanitarian law and human rights.

The resolution calls the Iraqi government to guarantee bringing all culprits to justice, saying the Iraqi authorities have to be committed to the formation of a new and inclusive government within the time framework provided for by the constitution. No party should offer justifications that give "terrorist attacks" a cover of legitimacy.

It also urged Baghdad to work on enhancing human rights through involving all the components of the Iraqi society, as well as fostering religious and diversity freedoms, taking the necessary measures to avert attacks against people for their faith. Perpetrators have to be persecuted.

The resolution apted today condemned "in the strongest possible terms systematic violations and abuses of human rights and violations of international humanitarian law resulting from the terrorist acts committed by ISIL and associated groups" in many Iraqi provinces since June 10.


It also condemned attacks against people on ethnic or religion basis, and violence against women and children, urging all parties to conform to the international human rights law on the protection of civilians.

The Council urged the international community to support the Iraqi authorities to help grant protection for people who fled the areas targeted by terrorism.

The resolution demanded the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay to offer Baghdad necessary technical assistance to help boost human rights, besides sending investigators to Iraq to probe abuses and violations against the international human rights law.
