The Palestinian Authority on Thursday presented to the International Criminal Court files it claims contain proof that Israel committed war crimes.
PA Foreign Minister Riad Malki said the files he presented to the ICC were related to the conflict between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip last summer; settlement construction in the West Bank; the “occupation” of Palestinian land; and the treatment of Palestinians held in Israeli prisons.
The Palestinians joined the Hague-based court in April.
ICC Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda has launched a preliminary investigation into the situation in the Palestinian territories in the last year to see if meets the criteria for a formal investigation. The examination is ongoing and there is no deadline set for its conclusion.
