Palestinians want independent probe of Gaza killings

UNITED NATIONS - The Palestinians said Friday they want the UN Human Rights Council to establish a commission to carry out an independent investigation of the IDF's killing and wounding of Palestinians during protests in Gaza.


Riyad Mansour, the Palestinian UN ambassador, said his counterpart in Geneva will start the process early next week with initial consultations that will hopefully culminate in an emergency meeting of the rights council and approval of a resolution authorizing a body "to investigate these crimes."


"It seems that the Israeli occupying forces are not restraining themselves, they're not listening to anyone and they are continuing with this massacre," Mansour told reporters.
