GENEVA — A group of UN experts has criticized Israel and Hamas for failing to conduct serious probes into alleged war crimes last year in the Gaza Strip.

The panel said that Israel only investigated low-ranking officials and the inquiries didn't meet standards of impartiality.
Officials at Israel's mission to the
UN in Geneva declined immediately to comment.
The experts said an
inquiry by Hamas "made no serious effort" to address allegations
leveled against the Islamist group by a previous UN panel led by South
African Judge Richard Goldstone.
The three-member panel appointed
by the UN Human Rights Council published its report Tuesday.
