Germany Says No to ICC War Crimes Against Israel
The International Criminal Court is currently weighing whether to open an investigation into possible war crimes committed in Gaza and the West bank by Israel. Germany, the Czech Republic, and possibly Austria will argue that the ICC has no jurisdiction in Palestinian Territories because it’s not considered a state.
While many assume the West Bank and Gaza are occupied territory, it’s actually considered disputed land. Historically, under international law, Israel has a right to the West Bank and Gaza. These EU nations who are standing up for Israel are sending a clear message to the world that the International Court has no such standing for an investigation against the Jewish state.
