U.N. presses for more investigations into Israel-Gaza war

Breaking News

The United Nations' General Assembly on Friday passed an Arab League-backed resolution calling on Israeli and Palestinian leaders to further investigate alleged war crimes during the Israel-Gaza war.

The non-binding resolution calls for "credible and impartial" investigations, with results expected in five months.

Though the resolution cited the Goldstone report, which alleged war crimes on both sides, Riyad Mansour, the Palestinian observer at the United Nations, cast it as part of a fight for "those criminals who committed war crimes against the Palestinian people from the Israeli side to be brought to justice."
