Amnesty International urged Friday UN secretary-general Ban Ki-moon to broaden an investigation of attacks on UN institutions in the Gaza Strip so that it becomes a comprehensive probe into all violations of international law committed by Israel and allegedly by other parties to the conflict.

Amnesty pointed out that its researchers, who visited Gaza during and after the fighting, found compelling evidence of war crimes and other serious violations of international humanitarian law.

"The UN"s investigation must not be so limited as to look only at recent attacks by Israeli forces on UN schools, staff and property in Gaza. It is not only the victims of attacks on the UN who have a right to know why their rights were violated and who was responsible, and to obtain justice and reparation," AI secretary-general Irene Khan said.

The UN committee assigned to investigate Israeli bombings of UN buildings during the war on Gaza started its work Thursday and will be in the Strip soon.

The Israeli military offensive on the UN offices and schools had claimed the lives of dozens of Palestinian refugees and caused material damage to UN facilities.
