Al-Jazeera Video: UN debates Gaza report - 29 Sep 09

"The eyes of the Arab world and beyond are focused on debate at the UN Human Rights Council and whether it will agree that alleged war crimes in Gaza warrant criminal action.

Richard Goldstone, a South African judge, led an investigation into the war on Gaza, which left more than 1,400 Palestinians dead, and his report said that there was clear evidence that crimes had been committed by both sides.

Israel has dismissed the findings as politically motivated, but many commentators have warned that the credibility of the UN body rests on its willingness to act.

Palestinians, however, simply hope that any measures taken by the council will prove to be the first step towards getting justice for the Gazans who suffered during the conflict.
