ICC starts war crimes investigation in Palestinian territory

The International Criminal Court opened an inquiry into possible war crimes in Palestinian territory since June 2013.

Prosecutors at the ICC said  that crimes committed since June 13 last year would be investigated with “full independence and impartiality,” in a statement made on Friday.

“It is a legal matter now and we have faith in the court system, “ said the head of the Palestinian delegation in The Hague, Nabil Abuznaid.

The war between Hamas militants and Israel in between July and August last year resulted in the death of over 2,100 Palestinians and 73 Israelis, reports Reuters.
