US lifts airline ban, while human rights council in Geneva votes to investigate offensive and Hamas calls for humanitarian truce

The UN has said Israel may have committed war crimes in its offensive against Hamas in Gaza, in which hundreds of Palestinian civilians have been killed in two weeks. In Geneva the UN human rights council voted to launch an international inquiry, with the US opposing the move and 17 countries abstaining.
