ICC won’t hesitate to probe alleged Israeli war crimes if law demands

The International Criminal Court Prosecution will not hesitate to criminally investigate alleged Israeli war crimes if required by its Rome Statute, chief prosecutor Fatou Bensouda said on Tuesday.

Her statement came after a meeting with Palestinian Authority Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki at The Hague on Tuesday, where he gave her a new submission about new alleged war-crimes issues and told her that further delay on her part would allow Israel impunity.

Maliki and the PA accuse Israeli soldiers and officials of war crimes relating to the IDF’s killing of more than 100 Palestinians on the Gaza border over the last six weeks and regarding the 2014 Gaza War, as well as blame Israel for building 10,000 illegal units in the West Bank and east Jerusalem as part of the settlement enterprise.
