Israel ‘surprised’ by ICC prosecutor’s warnings

Israel on Wednesday sparred publicly with the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court who warned in an Associated Press interview that if Israel does not provide reliable information, she may be forced to decide whether to launch a full-scale investigation into alleged war crimes based only on Palestinian allegations.

Diplomatic sources in Jerusalem expressed “surprise” that Fatou Bensouda made the comments in the interview in which she said she has not received any information from either side regarding last summer’s operation in Gaza, but that it was in the “best interest” of both sides to provide information.
