ICC verlangt Verhaftung der Israel, Hamas Führung

May 21, 2024 - Der Hauptankläger des Internationalen Strafgerichthofs sagt, er habe Haftbefehle für die Top Führer von Israel und Hamas verlangt wegen
mutmaßlicher Kriegsverbrechen und Verbrechen gegen die Menschlichkeit.

ICC prosecutor Karim Khan said in a statement issued after more than seven months of war in Gaza that he had reasonable grounds to believe the five men “bear criminal responsibility” for alleged war crimes and crimes against humanity.

He said he had applied for an arrest warrant for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as well as his defence minister Yoav Gallant. They have overseen Israel's offensive against Hamas in Gaza since the Palestinian militant group's deadly Oct. 7 raid on Israel.

Khan has also applied for arrest warrants for Hamas chief Yahya Sinwar; Mohammed Al-Masri, the commander-in-chief of the military wing of Hamas who is widely known as Deif; and Ismail Haniyeh, head of Hamas' Political Bureau, according to Reuters.
