Palestinians on Tuesday urged the United Nations to “punish” Israel as a scathing U.N. report accused the nation of war crimes during its military offensive in Gaza last winter.
But Israel rejected the investigation as one-sided and shameful.
The report accused Israel of committing “actions amounting to war crimes, possibly crimes against humanity” during its military incursion into Gaza from December 27 to January 18.
