Israel will not cooperate with ICC

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu held a meeting Thursday with Defense Minister Benny Gantz, Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit, as well as several other higher ups in the defense establishment, regarding the Intentional Criminal Court’s decision to investigate Israel for alleged war crimes against the Palestinians.

At the end of the meeting, it was decided that Israel would make it clear to the ICC’s Chief Prosecutor, Fatou Bensouda, that she has no authority to open an investigation against Israel, which will refuse to cooperate on the matter.
