Meretz head says he doesn’t support ICC probe of Israel

Meretz party chief Nitzan Horowitz has told Channel 12 he does not support the International Criminal Court’s decision to investigate Israel.

Horowitz sparked outrage earlier this week when he said “there were grounds for the decision” by the ICC.

He now tells the TV network that he merely meant that Israel’s policies toward the Palestinians were the cause of the decision, but that he does not back it.
