Palestine alleges Israel war crimes

The Palestinian foreign minister visited the International Criminal Court yesterday to hand prosecutors files detailing possible Israeli war crimes in Gaza and settlement construction in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

In a statement ahead of the presentation, the Palestinians said the information includes "statistics on settlements, prisoners, as well as statistics on Israel's aggression and attack on Gaza 2014."

Israel is not a member of the ICC and rejects the court's authority.
