The chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court has demanded the issuance of an arrest warrant for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on charges of war crimes.

According to international media reports, Chief Prosecutor Karim Khan has demanded the issuance of arrest warrants for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, his defense chief Yoo Gallant and three Hamas leaders.

Karim Khan says that after the war in Gaza for more than 7 months, the International Court of Justice has reasonable grounds to believe that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, his defense chief Yoo Gallant, Hamas chief Yahya Sinwar, Hamas The commander-in-chief of the military wing of the Islamic State, Muhammad al-Masri, and Ismail Haniyeh, the head of the political bureau of Hamas, are responsible for alleged war crimes and crimes against humanity.

Israeli and Palestinian leaders have rejected the war crimes charges leveled by Chief Prosecutor Karim Khan and criticized calls for an arrest warrant, the report said.

The report also states that France, unlike its Western allies, supported the International Criminal Court’s decision.

In this regard, the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs says that it is up to the court to decide on the issuance of a warrant after seeing the evidence.

The French Foreign Ministry also says that we have been warning for months about the unacceptable level of civilian casualties in Gaza and the lack of aid access.
