UN chief Ban Ki-moon has urged "credible" investigations by Israel and the Palestinians into allegations of war crimes during the Gaza conflict.
The plea was conveyed by Undersecretary General Lynn Pascoe during a Security Council debate on the Middle East.
It chimes with a key recommendation in a human rights probe on Gaza alleging serious breaches of international law.
The report's author had urged Mr Ban to put it before the Security Council to ensure the findings are followed up.
The secretary general "calls upon all of the parties to carry out credible domestic investigations into the conduct of the conflict without delay," said Mr Pascoe, who has responsibility for political affairs.
"He hopes that such steps will be taken wherever there are credible allegations of human rights abuses throughout the world," he added.>>>
