GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Hamas on Tuesday welcomed the UN decision to appoint a panel to investigate possible violations of humanitarian law during Israel's offensive on the Gaza Strip, a statement said.

Hamas spokesperson Sami Abu Zuhri said in a statement that Hamas welcomed the move, which he said would be a probe into Israeli "war crimes on Gaza."

The UN Human Rights Council on Monday appointed a three-member panel to look into possible humanitarian law violations throughout the assault.
