UN Human Rights Council decides to urgently dispatch experts to probe Israel's killing of Palestinians in Gaza.
By Al Jazeera: The United Nations' top human rights body has voted to send a team of international war crimes investigators to probe the deadly shootings of Gaza protesters by Israeli forces.
A resolution calling on the UN Human Rights Council to "urgently dispatch an independent, international commission of inquiry" was backed on Friday by 29 members.
The members - United States and Australia - voted against and 14 abstained.
Investigators must "investigate all alleged violations and abuses ... in the context of the military assaults on large scale civilian protests that began on 30 March 2018", the approved resolution said.
The commission of inquiry will be asked to produce a final report next March.
