Jerusalem - Israel's prime minister says the United Nations report on the 2014 Gaza war is "biased".

Benjamin Netanyahu said on Monday that the UN Human Rights Council that commissioned the inquiry does "everything but worry about human rights".

The report found that both Israel and Palestinian militant groups may have committed war crimes during the conflict last July.

More than 2 200 Palestinians, including hundreds of civilians, were killed during the fighting, according to UN and Palestinian officials, while 73 people, including six civilians, died on the Israeli side.

Netanyahu insisted that Israel acted throughout the conflict according to international law.
