The United Nations’ top human rights body has appointed three independent experts to conduct a fact-finding mission on how Israel’s West Bank settlements affect Palestinians.

The president of the U.N. Human Rights Council, Uruguay Ambassador Laura Dupuy Lasserre, on Friday named three women to the panel, The Associated Press reported. 

Dupuy Lasserre said their mission will be to look how the Israeli settlements affect “the civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights of the Palestinian people,” the AP reported.

The delegates are Christine Chanet of France, Unity Dow of Botswana and Asma Jahangir of Pakistan.
