Germany: Our legal view on the ICC hasn't changed

Germany on Tuesday sided with Israel after the International Criminal Court (ICC) ruled last week that Judea, Samaria, Gaza and eastern Jerusalem are within its jurisdiction, paving the way for a war crimes probe against Israel.

“Our legal view on jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court regarding alleged crimes committed in the Palestine territories remains unchanged: the court has no jurisdiction because of the absence of the element of Palestinian statehood required by international law,” German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas wrote on Twitter.
