In a letter to the attorney general, 22 Israeli experts in international law warn that the violent rampage of settlers in the West Bank town of Huwara last night, including the killing of a Palestinian, could amount to war crimes.

They add that far-right politicians’ statements and tweets in the hour prior to the rampage and in its wake could also make them responsible for war crimes.

They call for “an immediate and effective probe” into settlers’ actions as well as leaders’ statements that may be seen as incitement to violence.
