Tens of thousands of Palestinians in the occupied West Bank have marched against Israeli aggression in Gaza, and the loss of hundreds of lives over more than two weeks of violence.
International pressure is mounting up. The UN in a statement commented that Israel may have committed war crimes in its offensive against Hamas in Gaza, in which hundreds of Palestinian civilians have been killed balloting towards an international inquiry.
India along with BRICS countries today voted in support of a UN Human Rights Council resolution to launch a probe into Israel's offensive on Gaza. India along with other countries, Brazil, Russia, China and South Africa voted for a Palestinian-drafted resolution on "Ensuring Respect for international law in The Occupied Palestinian Territories, including East Jerusalem".
In the 46-member council, 29 countries voted in support of the resolution while 17 nations abstained. The US was the only nation to vote against the resolution. European countries abstained.
