UN calls for “transparent” probe into mass graves at 2 Gaza hospitals

Srinagar, April 24 (KNS): The United Nations has called for a “transparent and credible” investigation of mass graves uncovered at two major hospitals in war-hit Gaza that were raided by Israeli troops.

According to reports, UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric said credible investigators must have access to the sites and that more journalists need to be able to work safely in Gaza to report on the facts.

For the United Nations to conduct an investigation, one of its major bodies would have to authorize it, Dujarric said.

“I think it’s not for anyone to prejudge the results or who would do it,” he said, adding, “I think it needs to be an investigation where there is access and there is credibility.Click Here To Follow Our WhatsApp Channel

Earlier Tuesday, UN human rights chief Volker Turk said he was “horrified” by the destruction of the Shifa medical center in Gaza City and Nasser Hospital in the southern city of Khan Younis as well as the reported discovery of mass graves in and around the facilities after the Israelis left.

He called for independent and transparent investigations into the deaths, saying that the prevailing climate of impunity, this should include international investigators. (KNS)
