UNHRC adopts resolution on 2014 Gaza war

GENEVA - The United Nations human rights body called on Israel and the Palestinians to prosecute alleged war crimes committed in the 2014 Gaza war and to cooperate with the International Criminal Court's preliminary investigation.
The UN Human Rights Council debated the issue days before the first anniversary of Israel launching "Operation Protective Edge" in response to rockets fired by terrorists in the Hamas-ruled enclave into Israel.
