Israeli source expresses concern that ICC could secretly issue arrest warrants

A source on the Israeli team working to prevent ICC arrest warrants against Israeli officials over the war tells the Ynet news site of concerns that The Hague-based court could secretly issue the warrants.

They believe that those officials targeted would only learn they’re wanted for arrest when traveling to Europe.

The source also criticizes Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s conduct on the matter, saying the premier’s associates are antagonizing the court’s chief prosecutor Karim Khan, and in doing so backing him into a corner.

“Netanyahu’s people are behaving like a bull in a china shop,” the source is quoted as saying. “The question is how much diplomatic protection Antony Blinken will give when he arrives Tuesday in Israel.”
