The United Nations announced that the Zionist regime is responsible for committing new forms of war crimes in Gaza including imprisoning civilians.

Richard Folk, the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Palestinian human rights, stated that the crimes committed against the Palestinians in the latest war were crimes against humanity. He said that these crimes included breaking human rights and other crimes against humanity.

He added that Gaza was full of civilians and that there was no legal method of performing military missions with the various weapons that were used.

He stated that Israel imprisoned Palestinian civilians by not allowing them to leave the battlefield in Gaza.

Falk, last week, emphasized that, after investigation, if some people were found responsible for the war crimes the next step would be to form a criminal court under the supervision of the United Nations.

In the 22-Day-War against Gaza, 1,330 people were killed; 437 of them being children and 110 of them being women. Also, 5,450 Palestinians were injured.
