The UN Human Rights Council on Wednesday agreed to back a report which found “clear evidence” for legal action against Israel over its attack on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla.

The resolution, which was tabled by Pakistan on behalf of the Organisation of the Islamic Conference, was approved with 30 votes in favour, one against and 15 abstentions.

It “endorses the conclusions contained in the report” of an inquiry ordered by the council on the May 31 incident during which nine Turkish nationals were killed when Israeli soldiers stormed ships carrying aid to Gaza.
