star this property answer text The UK's Representative made clear in our statement that the UK fully supports and recognises the need for an independent and transparent investigation, which includes the extent to which Israeli security forces' rules of engagement are in line with international law, and the role Hamas played in events. The UK abstained on the resolution at the Human Rights Council because it was not impartial, and was unhelpfully unbalanced. We could not support an international investigation that is mandated to look at Israel's actions alone. This would not provide a comprehensive assessment of accountability. It would risk hardening positions on both sides and move us further away from a just and lasting resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The UK has called directly on Israel to carry out a transparent inquiry into the Israeli Defence Forces’ conduct at the border fence and to demonstrate how this will achieve a sufficient level of independence. This investigation should include international members and the findings of such an investigation should be made public.
