Israel slams ‘politically motivated and morally flawed’ UN Gaza report
Foreign Ministry says investigators ‘lacked much of the relevant information’; Netanyahu concludes ‘report is biased’
Israel on Monday said it would “seriously” evaluate the United Nations Human Rights Council inquiry on the Gaza conflict, while politicians from left and right slammed the international body for bias and declared that the international investigators lacked access to evidence.
The report, released in Geneva on Monday afternoon, said both Israel and Hamas may have committed war crimes during the 50-day war last summer. The UN Human Rights Council report …placed blame on both parties but focused more on Israel’s role.
… The Human Rights Council “in practice does everything but worry about human rights,” the prime minister (Netanyahu) charged. “The commission spends more time condemning Israel than Iran, Syria and North Korea put together.”
