The United Nations human rights chief Volker Turk says he was "very disturbed" by remarks made by two far-right Israeli government ministers this week pushing for the resettlement of Gaza civilians outside the Gaza Strip to "third countries," APA reports.

About 85% of Gazans have been internally displaced by the war and have the right to return to their homes, Turk wrote in a post on X, formerly Twitter, Thursday.

He reiterated that under international humanitarian law, the forcible transfer of protected persons within or from an occupied territory is forbidden.
