Çavuşoğlu: Israel Should Be Taken to ICC

DNA India

Israel should be tried by the International Criminal Court (ICC) for the recent massacre committed by Israeli security forces against Palestinians, just like any crime against humanity, Turkey’s Foreign Minister Çavuşoğlu said.

“Israel should be taken to the International Criminal Court [over the killing of Palestinians]. Since third parties cannot do it, Palestine needs to initiate this,” Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu said in an interview with state broadcaster TRT on May 17. The foreign minister referred to the killing of more than 60 Palestinians and wounding of more than 2,000 at the hands of the Israeli security forces on May 14 during protests against the opening of the United States Embassy in Jerusalem.

“We are analyzing what kind of legal steps can be taken [against Israel],” he said, recalling Turkey’s legal assistance to relevant Palestinian authorities in this regard.
