UN's Ban mulls investigation into attacks on UNRWA facilities during Gaza operation

September 10, 2014 08:56

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon told the Arab-language daily Al Hayat that the global body is considering a separate investigation into the circumstances surrounding the attacks on the organization’s facilities and workers in the Gaza Strip during Operation Protective Edge.

Ban is quoted as saying that an investigative committee of this nature – if and when it is needed – would only begin its work after the UN Human Rights Council probe, which is headed by Canadian jurist William Schabas, completes its work.
