JAKARTA - Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian, in a meeting with UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Volker Turk in Geneva, proposed the creation of a commission to investigate Israel's alleged crimes in the Gaza Strip.

"At a meeting with high human rights commissioners in Geneva, Iran's foreign minister outlined the creation of a commission to establish the facts of the crimes of the Israeli regime in the Gaza Strip as the responsibility of the UN Human Rights Council," the Iranian government wrote on the Telegram platform.

Amirabdollahian also stressed the importance of preventing the United Nations from being discredited due to the current situation in the Palestinian enclave, he continued.

On October 7, 2023, the Palestinian Hamas movement launched a large-scale rocket strike against Israel from Gaza and violated the border, killing 1,200 people and kidnapping about 240 others.

Israel launched retaliatory attacks, ordered a total blockade of Gaza, and began ground attacks on Palestinian enclaves with the aim of eliminating Hamas fighters and rescuing the hostages.

29,700 people have been killed so far in the Gaza Strip, the local government said.

On November 24, Qatar mediated a deal between Israel and Hamas over a temporary ceasefire and exchange of several detainees and hostages, as well as sending humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip. The ceasefire has been extended several times and ended on December 1.

In addition, more than 100 hostages are believed to be still being held by Hamas in Gaza.
