Palestinians Urge ICC Probe Into Israel

Many Palestinians welcomed the ICC’s announcement that it will investigate Israel’s military campaign in Gaza in 2014. The court’s outgoing prosecutor, Fatou Bensouda, said on Wednesday her office will formally investigate war crimes in Judea & Samaria, Gaza, and East Jerusalem after the court accepted jurisdiction last month. Israel does not recognize the court’s jurisdiction, and PM Netanyahu has vowed to fight this however possible. The ICC’s probe will also include investigating Hamas and other Palestinian terror groups’ activity against Israel. Please pray for wisdom for Israeli officials as they navigate this precarious situation. Please also pray for a fair and just inquiry into the war of 2014, which Hamas had actually started.
