The UN appointed a five-member ad hoc conciliatory committee to arbitrate Palestinian Authority charges that Israel committed acts of apartheid in the West Bank, east Jerusalem and Gaza. It's the latest step in a procedure that began in 2018 when the PA filed a change of apartheid with the 18-member professional UN body known as the UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. Both Israel and the PA are signatories to the convention, which allows the CERD to monitor their compliance with human rites and allows them to set in motion an investigation against the other. In 2018 the PA complained that Israel was out of compliance with Articles 2, 3 and 5 of the convention.
