A Palestinian rocket killed the 11-month-old son of a BBC employee during Israel's November operation in Gaza, the United Nations determined.

Israel had been blamed for the death of Omar Jihad al-Mishrawi, the son of BBC Arabic journalist Jihad al-Mishrawi, as well as Hiba Aadel Fadel al-Mishrawi, 19. But a report released last week by the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights said the two were killed by a Palestinian rocket fired at Israel that missed its target.

The report criticized Israel and the Palestinians for violating international law during the Israeli military's eight-day Operation Pillar of Defense.

The Palestinians fired nearly 1,500 rockets into Israel during the operation; Israel struck more than 1,500 sites during the operation.
