Israel on Monday slammed a report by a UN inquiry commission on the 2014 Gaza war describing it as being “politically motivated.”
Israeli Foreign Ministry said in a statement that the report was commissioned by a notoriously biased institution, given an obviously biased mandate.
It said it would study the report seriously, but in an initial reaction, it charged that the council has a singular obsession with Israel.
“Israel was forced to defend itself against Palestinian militants who committed a double war crime.
“They indiscriminately target Israeli civilians while deliberately endangering Palestinian civilians, including children, by using them as human shields” it said.
