PLO to send new petitions to ICC on Israel crimes

Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) Secretary General Saeb Erekat says new petitions will be sent to the International Criminal Court (ICC) against the Israeli regime for the crimes against Palestinians. The senior Palestinian official on Tuesday slammed Israel for extrajudicial killing of Palestinians, as well as committing field executions and collective punishment against them.”

He also called on the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Extrajudicial, Summary and Arbitrary Executions Christof Heyns to visit the occupied Palestinian territories and launch an immediate probe into field executions carried out by Israeli forces and settlers.”

The remarks come amid recent deadly tensions between the Tel Aviv regime and Palestinians that have been triggered by Israel’s imposition of sweeping restrictions on entries into the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in East al-Quds (Jerusalem) on August 26 and Israeli settlers’ repeated attacks on the mosque. According to the Palestinian Ministry of Health, at least 30 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces between October 1 and 13.”
