Germany: We will arrest Netanyahu – Al-Alam News Channel

World – Europe

In response to a question from reporters about whether Germany would implement the International Criminal Court’s arrest warrant against Netanyahu and Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant, Schulz spokesman Stephen Hebstreit said replied: “Of course, we respect the law.”

Judges in the Pre-Trial Chamber of the International Criminal Court are considering a request by Prosecutor Karim Khan to charge Israeli officials with committing war crimes and crimes against humanity in the Gaza Strip.

The Palestinian Authority has already announced its acceptance of the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court over crimes committed by Tel Aviv. However, Israel does not recognize the Court’s jurisdiction over the actions of the Israeli army in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank.

After initial reports of Khan’s intentions emerged, Netanyahu warned late last month that if the Hague court greenlighted the arrest warrants, it would constitute an “unprecedented anti-Semitic hate crime.” “.

Khan told CNN on Monday that the ICC prosecutor had sought injunctions against Netanyahu and Gallant for crimes including “provoking genocide, using starvation as a method of warfare, including withholding humanitarian relief supplies, and deliberately targeted civilians in conflict.”

After Khan’s announcement, Germany said it respected the independence of the Hague tribunal. The German Foreign Ministry said: “The International Criminal Court is a fundamental achievement of the international community that Germany always supports. Germany respects its independence and the conduct of proceedings, as it does all other international courts. »

In the same context, Norwegian Foreign Minister Espen Eide said his country was obliged to arrest the Israeli Prime Minister if he visited Norway after a decision by the International Criminal Court was issued.

Spanish Foreign Minister José Manuel Albarez also announced that Madrid would support any decision by the International Criminal Court to issue arrest warrants regarding the situation in Palestine.

Norway, Spain and Ireland announced recognition of the State of Palestine, and the Palestinian presidency welcomed the announcement, calling it “a historic moment in which the free world triumphs for truth and justice after decades of struggle.
