Official: Palestinians To Prosecute Israel At ICC On June 25

A senior diplomat announced on Wednesday that Palestinians are to submit two lawsuits against Israel to the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague on June 25. Nabil Abu Zneid, the Palestinian ambassador in the Netherlands, told "Voice of Palestine" radio that the two suits are related to the Israeli settlement in the West Bank and the Israeli war waged on the Gaza Strip last summers, Xinhua reported. "Palestinian Foreign Minister Reyad el-Malki is to head a high-ranking Palestinian delegation that comprises rights groups, and will submit the two suits against Israel to the international court on June 25," said Abu Zneid. On April 1, the non-member observer state of Palestine became a member in the ICC and the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court.
