World Bulletin / News Desk

UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein on Wednesday warned that a wave of deadly Israeli-Palestinian violence was "dangerous in the extreme" and could lead to a "catastrophe".

"The violence between Palestinians and the Israelis will draw us ever closer to a catastrophe if not stopped immediately," he said during a meeting of the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva.

Meanwhile, Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas called for the creation of a "special regime" for the protection of his people, as a wave of deadly Israeli-Palestinian violence showed no sign of abating.

Abbas called on the UN, "more urgently than any time before, to set up a special regime for international protection for the Palestinian people, immediately and urgently."
