Arab League calls on ICC to investigate ‘Israeli crimes’

The Arab League’s Permanent Committee on Human Rights urges the International Criminal Court prosecutor to urgently investigate “the crimes of the Israeli occupation” against Palestinians.

“Israel is an oppressive and murderous entity and its politicians and officers must be taken to the International Criminal Court,” Amjad Shamout, the committee’s chairman, says in a statement.

Shamout was referring to the killing of dozens of Palestinian protesters, including Hamas operatives, by Israeli forces during protests and clashes on Monday.
