Goldstone Follow-up Panel Enters Gaza


A United Nations committee charged with following up on the Goldstone Report on the Gaza war arrived in the coastal strip.

The 16 committee members crossed into Gaza through the Rafah crossing with Egypt late on Aug. 15, the French news service AFP reported.

They are scheduled to spend three days in Gaza and evaluate judicial procedures that Israel and the Palestinians can take in light of the Goldstone Report.

The Goldstone commission report, headed by former South African Judge Richard Goldstone, accused the Israelis and the Palestinians of war crimes and possible crimes against humanity during the month-long Gaza war, called Operation Cast Lead by Israel.

The Goldstone Report recommended that if Israel and Hamas do not conduct credible investigations, it will transfer its findings to the International Criminal Court in The Hague, AFP reported.

Israel’s military has completed its investigations in all but one of 30 cases singled out in the Goldstone Report, the Israel Defense Forces said, according to the Jerusalem Post.
