U.N. Report: Israel Security Forces May Have Committed War Crimes During Gaza Protests

ABC News Online: Israel security forces may have committed war crimes, should face justice for Gaza killings: UN

United Nations investigators said on Thursday Israeli security forces may have committed war crimes and crimes against humanity in killing 189 Palestinians and wounding more than 6,100 at weekly protests in Gaza last year.

The independent panel said it had confidential information about those it believes to be responsible for the killings, including snipers and commanders.

"The Israeli security forces killed and maimed Palestinian demonstrators who did not pose an imminent threat of death or serious injury to others when they were shot, nor were they directly participating in hostilities," it said in its report.

Israel rejected the report as a "theatre of the absurd".
