NEW YORK, (PIC)-- UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon announced Monday the formation of an independent panel aimed at reviewing “certain incidents reported during the recent Israeli military actions in Gaza Strip”.

In a statement attributed to his spokesperson, the Secretary-General declared that he had established the “internal and independent” UN Headquarters Board of Inquiry to review and investigate “a number of specific incidents reported between 8 July to 26 August.”

The Secretary-General called for a thorough investigation into incidents where UN facilities – including schools run by the UN agency tasked with assisting Palestinian refugees (UNRWA) – sustained hits resulting in the deaths of numerous innocent civilians and UN staff members, the spokesperson added.

The Board will also “review and investigate incidents in which weapons were found to be present on United Nations premises”, he continued. more
