The United Nations announced Friday that a Jewish judge from South Africa would lead a high-level mission to investigate alleged war crimes committed by Israel in the Gaza Strip. The global body said its former chief prosecutor for war crimes in Yugoslavia and Rwanda, Richard Goldstone, would head the probe ordered by the Human Rights Council in January. According to the mandate, the investigation will focus only on Palestinian victims of the three-week IDF operation against Hamas earlier this year. Goldstone will be accompanied by British human rights professor Christine Chinkin, Pakistani lawyer Hina Jilani and retired Irish Army colonel Desmond Travers.
