Israel Submits Gaza War Findings to Netanyahu Ahead of UN Report
JNS.org – An Israeli government-appointed panel on Sunday submitted a report to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu concluding that Israel adhered to international law during last year’s war with the Hamas terrorist group, ahead of the United Nations Human Rights Council’s (UNHRC) unveiling of its own findings on the Gaza conflict.
“We will expose the truth. Israel did not commit war crimes,” Netanyahu said Sunday.
The prime minister said that “anyone who wants to know the truth will read [Israel’s] report… Those who want to continue the baseless accusations can waste their time reading the U.N. report.”
“We will continue to defend our soldiers, while they continue to defend us,” added Netanyahu. While it was given to Netanyahu, Israel’s report has not yet been released to the public.
The UNHRC, which has a history of bias against Israel, is expected to release its findings this week.
