EP Endorses Gaza War Crime Report

The European Parliament backs the findings of a UN investigation that highlights Israel’s war crimes in Gaza during the December 2008-January 2009 incursion into the costal region.

On Wednesday, European Parliament passed a resolution calling on the European Union to "demand the implementation of the Goldstone report’s recommendations."

The resolution, which was approved by a vote of 335-287, said that the EU’s foreign policy chief, Catherine Ashton, should monitor the progress of the implementation of the Goldstone report.

The report accused Israel of committing war crimes during Operation Cast Lead in Gaza while at the same time claimed that Hamas also violated international law to some degree.

It also called on both sides to prepare a report on the issue for further review by the UN.
