ICC prosecutor asks for arrest warrants for Netanyahu, Hamas leaders

The prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) said Monday he is applying for arrest warrants for two Israeli government officials, including Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and three Hamas leaders, reported Xinhua.

Karim Khan said in a statement that he has "reasonable grounds to believe" that Netanyahu and Israeli defense minister Yoav Gallant, bear responsibility for "war crimes and crimes against humanity" committed in the Gaza Strip since Oct. 8, 2023.

The three Hamas leaders are Yahya Sinwar, Mohammed Diab Ibrahim Al-Masri (Deif) and Ismail Haniyeh, who the ICC prosecutor said are responsible for "war crimes and crimes against humanity" committed on the territory of Israel and in the Gaza Strip since Oct. 7, 2023.

    In my opinion, the ICC prosecutor’s decision to request arrest warrants for Netanyahu, Hamas leaders is a significant step towards accountability and justice for the crimes committed in the region. It is essential that those responsible for war crimes are held accountable, regardless of their positions of power.

    Do you think the ICC prosecutor’s request for arrest warrants for Netanyahu and Hamas leaders will lead to any significant actions? What are the potential implications of this move?
