International Criminal Court to issue arrest warrant for Benjamin Netanyahu for genocide

International Criminal Court

Haag, Netherlands : A terrible war continues between Israel and Hamas. Due to the horrific massacre in Gaza Strip, action may be taken against Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu. According to the information received, the International Criminal Court is going to issue a warrant for his arrest.

Warrant can be issued not only against Netanyahu but also against Israeli Defense Minister and IDF Chief. America has been enraged by this step of ICC. He has warned that if this happens then ICC should be ready to face the consequences.

The death toll due to Israeli army attack in Gaza Strip has crossed 34 thousand. Most of those killed in Gaza include innocent children and women. Many international organizations including the UN have raised their voice to stop ground and air operations on Gaza, but Netanyahu has not stepped back.

The court three years ago began investigating possible war crimes committed by the Jewish state and Palestinian militants in the 2014 Israel-Hamas war.

An Israeli government source said the US was also “part of a last-ditch diplomatic effort” to prevent the ICC from proceeding with the arrest warrant.

At the same time, Israel is trying through diplomatic channels to stop the war in Gaza to stop the International Criminal Court (ICC) from issuing arrest warrants on war crimes for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Defense Minister Yoav Galant and other military officials.

Israeli officials fear the Hague-based court could issue a warrant as early as this week.

Meanwhile, on Monday, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, who is currently in Saudi Arabia to discuss a ceasefire agreement in Gaza, called on Hamas to accept Israel’s latest and exceptionally generous offer for a possible ceasefire and end the Israel-Hamas war. Urged to ensure the release of the hostages.

America warned ICC

Lawmakers from both parties in the US have warned the International Criminal Court that Washington will retaliate against the court if arrest warrants are issued against top Israeli officials, Axios reports. Let us tell you that ICC can issue arrest warrant against Netanyahu, Israeli Defense Minister and IDF Chief. It has been said in the report that ICC is preparing to take action on this matter.

House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Michael McCaul said that a bill to sanction ICC officials is expected to be passed, but US officials feel that the ICC may back off after its threat. US House Speaker Mike Johnson has condemned the ICC for issuing an arrest warrant for Netanyahu over the Gaza war.
