Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday called for scrapping a U.N. commission, which is tasked with investigating potential war crimes committed last summer in Gaza, after the inquiry’s chief resigned amid accusations from Israel that he was biased against the country.
Netanyahu said the commission, set up by the Geneva-based U.N. Human Rights Council, was an “anti-Israeli body” that had a proven track record of doing nothing about true human rights violations around the world.
The U.N. commission was due to issue its report next month. Israel did not cooperate with it, saying it was hostile to Israel and that its conclusions were known in advance.
