Israel rejects U.N. report on Gaza deaths as

Israel rejected as a “theater of the absurd” on Thursday a U.N. report that accused its forces of possible war crimes in killing scores of Palestinians during Gaza border protests last year, Reuters reported. 

Acting Foreign Minister Israel Katz said in a statement that the U.N. Human Rights Council had “produced another hostile, mendacious and slanted report against the State of Israel ... No one can deny Israel the right of self-defense and the obligation to defend its citizens and borders from violent attacks.”
