Israeli attacks on Gaza may constitute war crimes: UN Human Rights chief Updated: 2021-05-28 06:58:46 KST

The United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet said Thursday, that Israel's recent attacks on Gaza may constitute war crimes.
According to Bachelet, speaking at a Special Session of the Human Rights Council, the strikes which killed 242 Palestinians and displaced 74-thousand people, “raise serious concerns of Israel's compliance with the principles of distinction and proportionality."
She added that despite Israel's claims that many of the buildings destroyed were hosting armed groups or used for military purposes, no such evidence had been seen.
While the UN human rights chief welcomed last week's ceasefire, she insisted the root cause of the violence must be addressed.
