ICC: Call for Investigation into Israel’s War 

Sudan Events – Sumaya Sayed

Five countries, including South Africa and Bangladesh, on Friday, called for an International Criminal Court investigation into Israel’s war on besieged Gaza that has left thousands of people dead, its chief prosecutor said.

ICC Chief Prosecutor Karim Khan said on Friday that South Africa, Bangladesh, Bolivia, Comoros and Djibouti — all ICC members — had sought an investigation of “the situation in the state of Palestine”.

Khan said in a statement that an investigation into events in besieged Gaza and the occupied West Bank started in March 2021 now “extends to the escalation of hostilities and violence since the attacks that took place on October, 2023”.

Khan, who recently went to the main crossing point between besieged Gaza and Egypt, said his team had collected a “significant volume” of evidence on “relevant incidents” in the war.
