Palestinians Seek War Crimes Against Israel

Thursday, June 25, 2015 | Tag Cloud

(Worthy News)-- The Palestinian Foreign Ministry on Thursday presented documents to the International Criminal Court in The Hague asserting that Israel should be investigated for war crimes committed in last summer's fighting in the Gaza Strip and for continued construction of Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank, the Washington Post reported.

The presentation of files to the ICC, written in broad outline with no specific charges against named individuals, is another step in what the Palestinians describe as their new strategy of "internationalizing" the conflict with Israel by seeking ways to embarrass, isolate and pressure it to withdraw from occupied territories and allow them to form a sovereign state.

The Palestinians stress they are not "referring" cases for prosecution but "supplying information" to the ICC prosecutor, who will make up her own mind how to proceed. --Source
