Amal Alamuddin Will Serve on the UN's Gaza Human Rights Commission
Amal Alamuddin has been appointed to serve on a new three-member commission for the United Nations to look into Israel’s possible violations of the rules of war in Gaza.
The London-based international law specialist is engaged to George Clooney and will serve alongside Senegal’s Doudou Diene and Canada’s William Schaba.
Navi Pillay, the UN high commissioner for human rights, says that Israel’s airstikes could amount to war crimes in Gaza.
“There are just a few examples where there seems to be a strong possibility that international humanitarian law has been violated, in a manner that could amount to war crimes,” Pillay said.
