Analysis: It’s time for more talking, more controversy, in phase two of war crimes legal battle

It’s time for phase two.

Phase one of the legal battle over alleged war crimes during the 2014 Gaza war entailed lots of interim reports from the IDF and Israel’s human rights critics, with no serious questioning of IDF commanders for alleged war crimes, no talking between Israel and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor and everyone waiting for the UN Human Rights Council’s June report.

Then came the UNHRC’s report which created a more hostile environment for Israel legally in some ways, but was also much more toned down in ways that helped leave more space for dialogue between Israel and ICC Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda.
