Israel rejects, Hamas welcomes UN Rights Council decision to probe conflict

Israel rejected and Hamas welcomed a decision on Thursday by the UN Human Rights Council to launch an international investigation into crimes that may have been committed in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Israel’s Foreign Ministry said the country would not cooperate with the probe, deeming it a bid to “whitewash crimes committed by the terror organization Hamas”.

A spokesman for the Palestinian terror group called its actions “legitimate resistance” and urged “immediate steps to punish” Israel.
