Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has angrily condemned the International Criminal Court’s prosecutor for seeking arrest warrants for him alongside Hamas’s leaders over alleged war crimes in the Gaza conflict.
Netanyahu rejected with disgust that a democratic Israel had been compared with mass murderers (Gaza).
Reacting to the statement on Monday, the US president Joe Biden said there was no equivalence between Israel and Hamas.
He added that it was clear that Israel wants to do all it can to ensure civilian protection.
US Secretary of State Antony Blinken echoed the president’s condemnation while noting that Washington fundamentally rejects the move and that ICC has no jurisdiction over this matter..
Blinken also suggested that the request for arrest warrants would jeopardise ongoing efforts to reach a ceasefire deal.
Recall that the chief ICC prosecutor, Karim Khan, said there were reasonable grounds to believe that Netanyahu and his Defence Minister Yoav Gallant bore criminal responsibility for alleged war crimes and crimes against humanity in Gaza and
was seeking a warrant for him and Hamas’s leader in Gaza.
