JNS.orgThe Shurat HaDin – Israel Law Center is gearing up to lodge war crimes complaints against senior Palestinian officials at the International Criminal Court in The Hague, Israel Hayomreported.

The nongovernmental organization is seeking to initiate lawsuits for crimes against humanity. Its lawyers said they would submit documents alleging that Palestinian officials in both Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip, and Fatah, which dominates the Palestinian Authority, are directly involved with aiding and encouraging terrorism against Israeli citizens.

Shurat HaDin Director Nitsana Darshan-Leitner said, “We believe that such recommendations for indictments are the only means to deter the Palestinians, who are rushing to join the International Criminal Court to file indictments against Israelis over crimes against humanity.”
