UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon appointed a five-member panel to investigate Israeli attacks on UN shelters during the Gaza war and the discovery of Hamas weapons at UN sites.

Ban announced plans to set up a probe during his visit to Gaza last month after describing Israeli shelling of UN-run schools as a "moral outrage".

Israel maintained that Hamas militants were using the schools to store weapons and denied it had deliberately targeted the facilities, which were being used as shelters by Palestinian civilians during the 50-day war.

At least five UN facilities were hit during the conflict, killing scores of Palestinians including children.
