Netanyahu Calls to Impose Sanctions Against International Criminal Court

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in an interview on a Christian television network that the International Criminal Court is in a "full frontal attack" on democracy and the Jewish people's right to live in Israel, and called for sanctions on the world court in light of its prosecutor's intent to probe Israel's alleged war crimes against Palestinians.

In December, the Office of the Prosecutor at the ICC said that there is reasonable basis to investigate Israel for its actions in the West Bank, Gaza, and East Jerusalem. The court is currently debating whether it has jurisdiction to investigate war crimes in the West Bank and Gaza.
