Foreign Ministry calls ICC to investigate of Israeli war crimes immediately
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates called the International Criminal Court (ICC) to expedite its investigation of Israeli war crimes and hold Israeli war criminals accountable.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a statement in response to Israel's assassination of five Palestinian citizens in Jerusalem and Jenin early this morning, saying, "This massacre is a new episode in the continuous series of [Israeli] crimes and field executions against our people, which amount to war crimes and crimes against humanity.
The latest killings were described as “a translation of public positions and statements made by Israeli officials to spread the culture of hatred, racism, occupation, hostility to our Palestinian people, and denial of their just and legitimate national rights.”
“The ongoing Israeli crimes demonstrate once again the credibility of President Mahmoud Abbas's important speech delivered before the UN General Assembly, particularly with regard to the demand for the international community to assume its legal and moral responsibilities towards the suffering of our people living under occupation,” the statement continued.
The Ministry stated unequivocally that the Israeli government and all of its organs bear full responsibility for any consequences that may arise as a result of the latest crime.
