The International Criminal Court (ICC) is set to launch an electronic platform that will enable Palestinians to submit complaints against Israeli crimes.
The platform, scheduled to be launched today, will allow Palestinians to submit complaints supported by photos and videos documenting the offenses committed by the occupation forces.
These submissions will be brought before the ICC for review, aiming to take decisive action and hold Israel accountable for its actions.
According to Omar Awadallah, United Nations Assistant Minister of Foreign Affairs, the platform is extremely important as the Israeli government persists in its discriminatory policies, disregarding all international agreements that mandate the Palestinian people’s urgent protection.
He called for continuous communication with the international community to impose punitive measures on Israel and put an end to its daily crimes.
Shawan Jabareen, Director of Al-Haq Foundation, stated that all reports and complaints received from Palestinians and submitted to the ICC are intended to exert greater pressure on the Office of the Prosecutor.
The goal is to compel the Prosecutor to address these issues consistently.
Jabareen highlighted the importance of documenting the crimes committed by the occupation forces in the International Criminal Court to hold war criminals accountable and achieve international justice.
He warned that if the Court fails to address individual cases brought forward by Palestinians, they will demand immediate closure of the Office of the Prosecutor as a form of protest and rejection of its irresponsible actions.
Jabareen further explained that there is a specific mechanism in place to receive all complaints and reports from Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, which will then be presented to the ICC’s Office of the Prosecutor for further action.
By allowing Palestinians to document and report violations directly to the ICC, it offers hope for accountability and a potential end to the ongoing injustices faced by the Palestinian people.
