Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says that any rulings issued by the International Criminal Court would not affect Israel’s actions, but would “set a dangerous precedent.”

“Under my leadership, Israel will never accept any attempt by the International Criminal Court in the Hague to undermine its basic right to defend itself,” Netanyahu says in a statement shared on Telegram.

“While decisions made by the court in the Hague will not affect Israel’s actions, they will set a dangerous precedent that threatens soldiers and public figures.”
