The U.N. Human Rights Council voted Friday to send a team of international war crimes investigators to probe the deadly shootings of Gaza protesters by Israeli forces.

With 29 votes in favour, two opposed and 14 abstentions, the U.N.’s top human rights body voted through a resolution calling on the council to “urgently dispatch an independent, international commission of inquiry… to investigate all alleged violations and abuses… in the context of the military assaults on large scale civilian protests that began on 30 March 2018.”

Israel condemned “hypocrisy and absurdity” of the probe.
