The United Nations General Assembly has backed an open-ended war crimes probe against Israel, including into the regime’s recent 11-day war on Gaza. An overwhelming majority of 125 countries voted in favor of the investigation. It was initially approved by the UN Human Rights Council in the aftermath of the Gaza war in May. The inquiry allows for a review of Israeli human rights violations in the occupied Palestinian territories. No such opened-ended investigation has ever been launched against any other UN member. The vote came after Israel’s amendment to defund the probe was rejected 125 to 8, with 34 abstentions. Back in May, the Israeli military launched a devastating war on the besieged Gaza Strip. It killed at least 260 Palestinians, including over 60 children.
