ICC to launch investigation into war crimes by Israel

Human rights organisations say that Israeli military courts give an illusion of justice when the victims are Palestinians.

The International Criminal Court’s prosecutor is expected to launch an investigation into potential war crimes committed by Israelis.

The court’s pre-trial chamber is looking at what jurisdiction it has over illegally occupied Palestinian territory.

Palestinians have long called for the ICC to begin examining cases.
