War Crimes Court ‘Monitoring Developments’ In West Bank

The International Criminal Court's top prosecutor says she is keeping a close eye on developments in the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and Gaza, as Israeli forces and Palestinians engage in deadly clashes and retaliatory strikes. In a tweet on Wednesday, the court's chief prosecutor, Fatou Bensouda, said she was concerned by developments in the region. "I note with great concern the escalation of violence in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, as well as in and around Gaza, and the possible commission of crimes under the Rome Statute," the prosecutor tweeted. "My office will continue to monitor developments on the ground and will factor any matter that falls within its jurisdiction." Bensouda said she echoed calls from the international community to de-escalate the situation, urging "calm" and "restraint."
