The United Nations Human Rights Council will investigate possible crimes during the recent conflict between Israel and Hamas.

A panel will look at violations committed in Israel, Gaza and the West Bank.

It says rocket launches from Hamas toward Israel were a clear violation of international humanitarian law.

It also says Israel's counterattacks raise concerns about a proportional response.
