Palestinian diplomats in Geneva said a UN report on war crimes in Gaza "remains alive" despite dropping their support for a resolution endorsing the 575-page document. Deputy ambassador Imad Zuhairi said the resolution in the UN Human Rights Council was deferred to March to get more of the body's 47-members on board. He denied that the surprise decision to delay the resolution came after heavy pressure from the United States. Washington and Israel have rejected the report compiled by a UN team led by former South African judge Richard Goldstone. Zuhairi told The Associated Press on Friday that delaying the resolution "is not a victory for Israel." He said "the report is there and we will ensure that the report remains alive."
