UN Fact Finding Mission on the Gaza Conflict (i.e. The Goldstone Report)
 

The United Nations Fact Finding Mission on the Gaza Conflict was established by the United Nations Human Rights Council after the Gaza War (27 December 2008 – 18 January 2009) as an independent international fact-finding mission to investigate violations of international human rights law and international humanitarian law throughout the Occupied Palestinian Territory, particularly in the Gaza Strip, in connection with the conflict. The executive summary of the report is available here .
