Arab League calls for probe into alleged crimes by Israeli forces against Palestinians

Arab League called Thursday for an international probe into alleged crimes by Israeli forces against Palestinians following mass protests on the Gaza border that saw dozens of demonstrators killed.

Arab League chief Ahmed Abul Gheit said that they will call for a credible international investigation into the crimes committed by the occupation.

He said this at a meeting of Arab foreign ministers in Cairo on today to discuss the violence.

Tens of thousands have protested along Gaza’s border with Israel since March 30 calling for Palestinian refugees to be able to return to their homes now inside Israel.

The largest demonstrations coincided with the move of the US embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem on Monday, which saw Israeli forces kill some 60 Palestinians.
