The other members of the panel are Patrick Cammaert, Maria Vicien-Milburn of Argentina, Lee O’Brien of the United States and Pierre Lemelin of Canada.
The UN probe panel was set up by UN Secretary-General Ban-Ki-moon to probe the presence of arms on UN premises in the Gaza strip and the damage to its facilities during the conflict between Israel and Palestinian factions.
The panel is aimed at reviewing certain incidents that occurred in the Gaza Strip between 8 July 2014 and 26 August 2014. The fighting raged in this time period saw entire neighbourhoods in the Gaza strip flattened and almost one-third of the area’s population uprooted. The violence killed more than 2100 Palestinians and destroyed over 100000 homes.
