Resolution 252 (May 1968): All measures and actions taken by Israel with the aim of changing the legal status of
Jerusalem, "including the expropriation of land and properties thereon are invalid and cannot change that
Resolution 446 (March 1979): "The policy and practices of Israel in establishing settlements in the Palestinian and other Arab territories occupied since 1967 have no legal validity." Israel must "rescind its previous measures and ... desist from taking any action which would result in changing the legal status and geographical nature and materially affecting the demographic composition of the Arab territories occupied since 1967, including Jerusalem, and, in particular, not... transfer parts of its own civilian population into the occupied Arab territories."
Resolution 465 (March 1980) Israel's settlement policy constitutes "a flagrant violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War". It "caIIs upon all States not to provide Israel with any assistance to be used for settlements in the occupied territories".
Resolution 471 (June 1980) re-emphasises the illegality of Israeli settlements and expresses concern "that Jewish settlers ... are allowed to carry arms thus enabling them to perpetrate crimes against the civilian Arab population".
Resolution 605 (December 1987), passed at the beginning of the first Palestinian intifada, deplores the "policies and practices of Israel which violate the human rights of the Paiestinian people in the occupied territories".
Resolutions 607 (January 1988), 636 (July 1989), 694 (May 1991), 726 (January 1992) and 799 (December 1992) condemn Israel's deportation of Palestinian civilians from the occupied territories, in violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention.
Resolution 904 (March 1994), after the massacre of Palestinian worshippers in Hebron by Baruch Goldstein, calls upon Israel to prevent illegal acts of violence by Israeli settlers. It also demands measures to guarantee the safety of Palestinian civilians, including "a temporary international or foreign presence", as provided for by the Oslo Accords.
Resolution 1322 (October 2000), passed soon after the outbreak of the second Palestinian intifada, "deplores the provocation carried out at al-Haram al-Sharif in Jerusalem on September 28 2000" (the visit of Ariel Sharon, to emphasise Israel's sovereignty over the area), and the subsequent violence in the occupied territories.
Resolution 1405 (April 2002) expresses concern at "the dire humanitarian situation of the Palestinian civilian population", particularly in Jenin refugee camp, and calls for "the lifting of restrictions imposed on the operations of humanitarian organisations".
Resolution 1435 (September 2002) condemns "all terrorist attacks against civilians" and also demands "the
expeditious withdrawal of the Israeli occupying forces from Palestinian cities".
