“Such crime reflects the enormity of the brutality that governs the mindset of the occupation, which allows itself to desecrate the Palestinians’ lives, their land and property,” the foreign ministry said.

The ministry also called on the International Criminal Court to assume its legal and moral responsibilities towards the crimes which Israel commits against the Palestinian people.
