The Palestinian Authority is set to submit their first files next week to the International Criminal Court to open a case against Israel, AFP reported on Thursday.
Their accusations against Israel include allegations of abuses which occurred in Gaza during last year’s war, and additional alleged crimes that have taken place in the Palestinian Authority territories since 2014.
The first files are to be submitted on June 25 for review by the board, Palestinian Authority official Ammar Hijazi was quoted as saying by AFP.
Hijazi stated that the file submitted is “only general, it’s only statistical,” and it does not include specific incidences as of yet. “But it certainly draws a grim picture of what Israel is doing and why we think that there are reasonable grounds… for the prosecutor to start investigations,” he added.
