EU joins calls for probe into mass graves at Gaza hospitals

The European Union wants an independent investigation into mass graves uncovered at Gaza’s Nasser and al-Shifa medical facilities.

“This is something that forces us to call for an independent investigation of all the suspicions and all the circumstances, because indeed it creates the impression that there might have been violations of international human rights committed,” EU spokesman Peter Stano said. Earlier, the UN also demanded a transparent inquiry into the mass graves, where Palestinian civil defence crew say they found more than 300 bodies. Any investigation, according to the UN, would need to involve international investigators “given the prevailing climate of impunity”. UN human rights office spokeswoman Ravina Shamdasani said some of the bodies at Nasser Hospital were allegedly “found with their hands tied and stripped of their clothes”.
