Türkiye Presses for ICC Case Against Israel over Gaza Genocide


Ankara, The Gulf Observer: Türkiye’s Justice Minister Yilmaz Tunc has stressed the need for the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court to expedite the conversion of a file against Israel into a case according to TRT.

“Israeli officials who have committed war crimes, aggression, murdered children, and committed genocide, including Netanyahu, must be brought before the court,” Tunc said on Saturday during a speech at the Inter-Parliamentary Jerusalem Platform 5th Conference.

“Unfortunately, a crime against humanity, a human tragedy, continues to unfold before the eyes of the world. The recent attacks in Palestine are unquestionably crimes against humanity, genocide, and war crimes,” he added.

Tunc noted that the UN and the Security Council have issued more than 60 resolutions concerning Israel’s unjust attacks and human rights violations.

“It is impossible to call a state that disregards the decisions and laws of international organizations, violates human rights, and systematically commits these violations a state. Israel has been acting like a terrorist organisation for almost a century,” he stated.
