GENEVA — A UN probe said Wednesday there was “clear evidence to support prosecutions” against Israel for “willful killing” and torture committed when its troops stormed a Gaza-bound aid flotilla in May.
In a scathing report, it also threw out Israel’s argument that activists on the aid ship were violent thereby justifying the decision by Israeli soldiers to open fire, adding that some were the victim of actions “consistent with…summary execution.”
The inquiry ordered by the UN Human Rights Council said Israel’s military used “unnecessary violence” in the incident and committed acts that “constituted grave violations of human rights law and international humanitarian law.”
There was “clear evidence to support prosecutions” of crimes against international humanitarian law including “wilful killing; torture or inhuman treatment; and willfully causing great suffering or serious injury to body or health,” it said.
