UN Secretary General Kofi Annan made a new appeal to Israel and Hezbollah “to respect their obligations under international humanitarian law,” in a preliminary report on the July 30 attack which left at least 28 civilians dead including 16 children.

“The attack on Qana should be seen in the broader context of what could be, based on preliminary information available to the United Nations, including eyewitness accounts, a pattern of violations of international law, including international humanitarian law and international human rights law, committed during the course of the current hostilities,” Annan said.
