GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- A delegation from the United Nations Human Rights Commissioner's office arrived in the Gaza Strip on Saturday evening via Egypt's Rafah crossing, Egyptian media said.

The 11-member delegation will discuss Israel’s violations of human rights in the coastal enclave, according to Egypt's Middle East News Agency.

In March, the UN Human Rights Council launched the probe into Israeli settlements in occupied Palestinian territory, prompting Israel to cut ties with the body.
