The Israeli Foreign Ministry has expressed a refusal to cooperate with the fact-finding mission with regard to the recent Israeli assault on the Gaza Strip coordinated by the Human Rights Council of the United Nations, say Israeli reports.According to Al Ray Palestinian Media Agency, the Ministry recently made recommendations not to cooperate with the UN mission.

Israeli daily Yediot Ahronot reported that the Israeli Foreign Ministry wonders if it should cooperate with a fact finding mission which relies on an ‘anti-Israeli majority’.

The sources said that ‘Israel did not cooperate with Goldstone. As a result, his report was disappeared.”

The Goldstone Commission report on the Israeli military aggression on Gaza from 2008-2009 accused Israel of committing war crimes in the Gaza Strip, in which nearly 1,400 Palestinians were killed, most of whom were civilians.
