Five nations request war crime probe over situation in Palestinian territories

International Criminal Court (ICC) Prosecutor Karim Khan announced on Friday that five countries, including South Africa, Bangladesh, Bolivia, Comoros and Djibouti have called for a war crime probe over the situation in Palestinian territories.

The ICC has an ongoing investigation into “the situation in the State of Palestine” for alleged war crimes committed since June 2014, Khan said in a statement.  

Khan said the ongoing investigation “extends to the escalation of hostilities and violence since the attacks that took place on 7 October 2023”.
