Senior prosecutors from the US, Germany, France, Argentina, and Austria visit Israel over the weekend to discuss how Hamas terrorists and senior officials responsible for the October 7 atrocities will be investigated and prosecuted.

The delegations all come from countries whose citizens were among those murdered in Hamas’s savage massacres in southern Israel.

They met with Israeli State Attorney Amit Eisman, as well as other senior officials in the Justice Ministry, to discuss the challenges involved in investigating Hamas terrorists and the plans to put them on trial.

“Hamas despicable crimes were directed not only against Israelis but against humanity in its entirety,” says Virginia Attorney General Jason Miyares who is participating in the delegation.

“We will do everything in our power to fight this organization and its people everywhere they are.”

Israel is believed to have captured dozens of those who took part in the massacres inside Israel.
