'The day has come': ICC seeks arrests of Netanyahu, Gallant, and Hamas chiefs
“I could not have been clearer,” Khan said.
“Those who do not comply with the law should not complain later when my Office takes action.

The International Criminal Court intends to issue arrest warrants for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Yoav Gallant on charges of crimes against humanity for Israel’s conduct in the Gaza war, its Chief Prosecutor Karim Khan announced Monday, on the 227th day of the Gaza war.

“Today, my Office seeks to charge two of those most responsible, Netanyahu and Gallant, both as co-perpetrators and as superiors pursuant to Articles 25 and 28 of the Rome Statute,” Khan stated.

Warrants will also be issued for Hamas leaders Yahya Sinwar, Ismail Haniyeh, and Mohammed Deif, Khan said as he demanded the release of the remaining 128 hostages in Gaza.

Khan first spoke of the warrants in an interview with CNN's Christiane Amanpour and then published a video and text statement from the court.


Netanyahu and Gallant would face accusations of starvation of civilians as a method of warfare, willfully causing great suffering or serious injury to body or health, and willful killing.

The charges also include: “Extermination and/or murder,.. including in the context of deaths caused by starvation, as a crime against humanity.”

“We submit,” Khan said, “that the crimes against humanity charged were committed as part of a widespread and systematic attack against the Palestinian civilian population pursuant to State policy.


“These crimes, in our assessment, continue to this day,” Khan explained.

“Israel has intentionally and systematically deprived the civilian population in all parts of Gaza of objects indispensable to human survival,” Khan said.

EXCLUSIVE:
ICC seeks arrest warrants against Sinwar and Netanyahu
for war crimes over October 7 attack and Gaza war

The International Criminal Court is seeking arrest warrants for Hamas leader in Gaza Yahya Sinwar and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity over the October 7 attacks on Israel and the subsequent war in Gaza, the court’s prosecutor Karim Khan told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour in an exclusive interview on Monday.

Khan said the ICC is also seeking warrants for Israel’s Defense Minister Yoav Gallant, as well as two other top Hamas leaders — Mohammed Diab Ibrahim al-Masri, the leader of the Al Qassem Brigades who is better known as Mohammed Deif, and Ismail Haniyeh, Hamas’ political leader.

The warrants against the Israeli politicians mark the first time the ICC has targeted the top leader of a close ally of the United States. The decision puts Netanyahu in the company of the Russian President Vladimir Putin, for whom the ICC issued an arrest warrant over Moscow’s war on Ukraine, and the Libyan strongman Moammar Gadhafi, who was facing an arrest warrant from the ICC for alleged crimes against humanity at the time of his capture and killing in October 2011.

By applying for the arrest warrants against Israeli and Hamas leaders in the same action, Khan’s office risks attracting criticism that it places a terror organization and an elected government on an equivalent footing.

A panel of ICC judges will now consider Khan’s application for the arrest warrants.

Khan said the charges against Sinwar, Haniyeh and al-Masri include “extermination, murder, taking of hostages, rape and sexual assault in detention.”

“The world was shocked on the 7th of October when people were ripped from their bedrooms, from their homes, from the different kibbutzim in Israel,” Khan told Amanpour, adding that “people have suffered enormously.”

The charges against Netanyahu and Gallant include “causing extermination, causing starvation as a method of war, including the denial of humanitarian relief supplies, deliberately targeting civilians in conflict,” Khan told Amanpour.

Wow -
I think it means Bibi can't leave Israel or some other country could arrest him
and extradite him to the Hague.

Putin has an arrest warrant issued by ICC how are they going with that?

As for the Israelis and Hamas it's just applications at this stage  a judge has to decide.

Karim Khan from the ICC is a muslim. Muslims have been at war with the jews for 1400 years.

Leftists and the Ayatollahs have a lot in common when it comes to criticism of Islam, they don't tolerate it.

Oh come on -
they dropped over 30,000 tons of bombs on the tiny area of Gaza.
They were 500lb and even 2,000lb bombs that
mostly landed on women and children.
They didn't allow women and children to leave Gaza to be put into tents -
and now over 20,000 of them are dead and there are
more than 70,000 people wounded.
They used food as a weapon of war - starving women, children and babies to death.
You wouldn't think that was possible in 2023 /  2024.

Why is it Israel's responsibility to feed an enemy that attacked them?

I'm pretty sure that's what war is.

Dear FD,
to work out such difficult questions -
you need only to consult your Bible to
find out what Jesus would have done if he was Bibi Netanyahu.

Why was there no arrest warrant sought for George W Bush; Tony Blair and John Howard?

I reckon it's a bit rich to go after Bibi for responding to events that Hamas launched.

Bibi should continue to attack Hamas until it loses the ability to rule Gaza.

If by "everything humanely possible" you mean they've intentionally targeted hospitals, maternity wards, pregnant women, babies, and children then ... yeah.

It's gonna take a while   Angry

"The prosecutor must request the warrants from a pre-trial panel of three judges, who take on average two months to consider the evidence and determine if the proceedings can move forward."

It's what we've been saying for over 6 months -
both sides in this war are nothing but criminals.
It's not new -
they have been slaughtering each other for 1000s of years in Israel.
