ICC Prosecutor: There’s Basis to Probe Israel Over War Crimes Against Palestinians, Court to Decide Over Jurisdiction

The Office of the Prosecutor at the International Criminal Court said on Friday that there is basis to investigate Israel for its actions in the West Bank and Gaza, but has requested the Court to decide over the question of its jurisdiction in the Palestinians territories.

"In brief, I am satisfied that war crimes have been or are being committed in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip," Fatou Bensouda wrote in her statement.
