The President of the Palestinian authority Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) met with the Prosecutor of the International criminal court in the Hague to transfer the materials to «Israeli crimes,» reports the news Agency France Presse.
This appeal followed on the background to the outbreak of Arab terror in Israel. A senior representative of the PLO Saeb Erekat said that the materials contain a detailed description of these «Israeli crimes», like «executions, destruction of houses, collective punishment and ethnic cleansing».
In particular, it contains all data «on Palestinian martyrs,» including the circumstances of their «executions», he said.
Previously the Palestinians have asked the ICC to investigate the burning of the house of the family Databse in the village of Duma, and handed over materials about the fighting during the anti-terrorist operation «Indestructible rock» carried out in the summer of 2014. This lawsuit was filed in June 2015.
Recall, December 31, 2014 Mahmoud Ababs signed 22 international treaties and conventions, including the «Rome Statute», the international Treaty establishing the international criminal court. This step was taken by the administration to the PA after the UN security Council rejected a resolution to «end the occupation».
Israel had not acceded to the ICC and is strongly opposed to Palestinian petitions in this instance.
