ICC delegation to visit occupied Palestinian territory in February

Post by sassy on Wed Dec 16, 2015 12:28 am

RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- A delegation from the International Criminal Court is expected to visit the occupied Palestinian territory in February, a Palestinian Authority offical said.


A member of a national committee in charge of follow-up with the ICC, Wasel Abu Yusif, told Ma'an that the visit will include ongoing investigations into cases raised to the international court by Palestinian leadership against Israel.The ICC is currently conducting a preliminary probe on possible Israeli war crimes in the occupied Palestinian territory.The probe, which was opened in January of this year, is not a full investigation, but an examination of available information to decide whether there is a "reasonable basis" to proceed with a full investigation.The turn by Palestinian leadership to the ICC has been referred to by Israeli officials as “diplomatic terrorism.”


Palestinian leadership moved to the ICC amid ongoing violations carried out by Israel that international rights group Amnesty International investigations have referred to as war crimes.The turn to the ICC was also influenced by the lack of progress made through peace negotiations in creating an independent Palestinian state.Abu Yusif said the committee held a meeting recently between all of its members in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, headed by PLO chief negotiator Saeb Erekat, to discuss a recent report published by the ICC on Palestine. He added that the committee discussed several proposals to hold Israel legally accountable for its crimes against Palestinians at the ICC.

When the case was put to the ICC they were told to investigate everything on both sides.  There is very little that can be classed as war crimes on the Palestinian side.  They don't have an army, they don't have a navy, they don't have an air force, they can't drop white phosphorus or flachette bombs etc etc etc.

It should all come out in the wash and so it should against all sides who have been involved in this conflict.

I can't think of a better outcome than that.

A chance to get at the truth and a ruling on it may well go along way to stoping these crimes.

What technicality, they have been told to investigate everything and everyone.

So what do you think the Palestinians were doing that were war crimes?  Defending yourself and your country is not a war crime.

their rockest are not aimed at military targets but civilian ones

for a start

the fact that most of them have failed to reach their intended target is neither here nor there

their operatives are attacking civilians indiscriminately and the leadership is not only condoning this but encouraging it....
