The UN Human Rights Council has voted to investigate violence in the recent conflict between Israel and Hamas.

Islamic countries

The body approved the resolution, brought by a group of Islamic countries, by 24 votes to nine. However the United States said the decision threatened to endanger progress in bringing calm to the region.

The text of the resolution, brought by the Organisation of Islamic Conference (OIC) and the Palestinian delegation, calls for a permanent Commission of Inquiry to be set up to report on rights violations in Israel, the West Bank and Gaza.

It also calls for the investigation of “all underlying root causes of recurrent tensions, instability and protraction of conflict”.
