RAMALLAH, March 19 (JMCC) - A draft resolution recommending that the United Nations General Assembly ask the International Criminal Court to probe possible war crimes in the Gaza Strip
will be considered on Monday, reports
the Associated Press.
The resolution is part of a panel report to the UN Human Rights Council. The panel has criticized Israel
for non-cooperation with its work by not providing access to Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories
It has also criticized Hamas
for not investigating charges of war crimes carried out by its fighters during Israel's 22-day assault on the Gaza Strip
in 2008 and 2009.
Just over a year ago, the UN General Assembly voted to give Israel and Palestinians an additional five months to probe the war crimes alleged by the world body.
Some 1,400 Palestinians, many of them civilians, were killed along with 13 Israelis in the conflict.
