The International Criminal Court has requested arrest warrants for Benjamin Netanyahu and Hamas leaders

The chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) has demanded the issuance of arrest warrants for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and three representatives of the Hamas leadership. France supported these actions, reports Reuters.

exterior of the recently opened new premises of the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague.


ICC Chief Prosecutor Karim Khan accused the head Israeli government, as well as the country's Defense Minister Yoav Galant, for using starvation as a method of warfare, as well as attacking civilians in the Gaza Strip. Hamas leaders Yahya Sinwar, Mohammed Deif and Ismail Haniyeh are also accused of war crimes and crimes against humanity.

While US President Joe Biden called the legal move against Israeli officials “outrageous,” the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) took a different stance.

“Let me be clear: there is no equivalent between Israel and Hamas,” Biden said.

France supported the decision

The French Foreign Ministry stated that their state supports MIA and “the fight against impunity.”

“We support the International Criminal Court, its independence and the fight against impunity in all situations,” the French foreign ministry said in a statement late on May 20.

If such orders are issued, members of the court, which includes almost all EU countries, could find themselves in a diplomatic difficult position.

French Foreign Minister Stephane Sejourne told the National Assembly on May 21 that “simultaneous” requests for warrants should not establish “equivalence” between Hamas and Israel.

“On the one hand, you have a terrorist group that carried out the October 7 attacks... and on the other, you have a democracy, Israel, which must respect international law while fighting a war that it did not start,” Sejourn stressed.

Netanyahu himself published a video on his X account in which he rejected Karim Khan’s accusations against him with undisguised indignation.

“With what audacity do you compare Hamas, which killed, burned, slashed, beheaded, raped and kidnapped our brothers and sisters, and IDF soldiers fighting a just war!” - said the prime minister.
