"Shameful": Israeli PM On UN Rights Council Probe Decision

UN rights chief says Israeli strikes in Gaza may be war crimes

Israel's foreign minister arrived in Egypt's capital Cairo on Sunday in a bid to shore up a cease-fire between Israel and the Palestinian militant group, Hamas.

Members of more than 100 Palestinian, Arab, and Muslim groups joined other critics of Israel's recent bombardment of Gaza in Washington, D.C. on Saturday to hold a March for Palestine urging U.S. President Joe Biden and Congress to hold the Israeli government "accountable for its war crimes".

International Development Minister Karina Gould said the aid will provide timely humanitarian assistance and support people in Gaza to recover from the damage caused by the recent conflict.

Also taking part in the sit-down was National Security Adviser Meir Ben-Shabbat, who met with Kemal earlier for what the PMO says was a "lengthy discussion on these matters".

The Palestinian foreign ministry, however, said the decision "reflects the determination of the global community to move forward in the path of accountability, law enforcement, and protection of Palestinian human rights".

Ashkenazi also said Israel was "fully committed" to repatriating Israeli prisoners held by Hamas.

The demonstration on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial came as a cease-fire that ended 11 days of intense fighting between Israel and the Islamist movement Hamas in the Gaza Strip has held.

But he added:. [and] It is imperative that we investigate and investigate. We need a World Health Organization to help with that problem.

"Pakistan stands in solidarity with the Palestinian people and shares the worldwide community's expectation for effective implementation of this resolution to ensure respect for global law as well as for rights and dignity of the people of Palestine", the statement read.

The 11-day war killed at least 248 in Gaza, including 66 children and 39 women.

The statement from Netanyahu's office said he and Kamel also discussed "mechanisms and processes to prevent the strengthening of Hamas and its use of the resources that will be directed to the civilian population in the future".

Palestinians have been politically divided between Hamas and its rival Fatah, but analysts say the latest escalation in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has served to unite the geographically fragmented Palestinian community in a way not seen in years.

Earlier Thursday, the UN Human Rights Council chose to create an open-ended global investigation into violations surrounding the latest Gaza violence, and into the "systematic" abuses in the Palestinian territories and inside Israel.

It said it would also look at the "underlying root causes of recurrent tensions and instability, including systematic discrimination" in the occupied Palestinian Territories and inside Israel.

Opening the session, United Nations rights chief Michelle Bachelet voiced particular concern about the "high level of civilian fatalities and injuries" from the attacks on Gaza and warned that Israeli attacks on the enclave "may constitute war crimes".
