Israel bolstering legal team ahead of UN Gaza probe | ToI - June 2014 |

A jittery Israeli military is gearing up for what could become its next big battle: dealing with UN investigations that could result in war-crimes allegations.

The army has beefed up its legal staff, is conducting internal investigations of its wartime actions and has prepared a detailed PR campaign of satellite photos and video clips -- hoping to persuade the world that its war against Hamas was justified.

"We take our business seriously, and as such we operate within the rules and regulations under the laws of war," said Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, a military spokesman.

More than 2,100 Palestinians were killed in the 50 days of fighting, most of them civilians, according to UN and Palestinian estimates in the Gaza War.
