Livni to head new Knesset subcommittee on lawfare

A new Knesset subcommittee, led by MK Tzipi Livni (Zionist Union), will deal with international legal warfare.

The panel is Livni’s initiative and a part of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, and will discuss international law in connection to war, legitimacy of military actions and defending Israel and IDF soldiers in those areas, the ICC and universal jurisdiction laws’ impact on Israeli military and civilian officials.

The area does not get enough attention and is a war front like any other, Livni said Monday, calling for immediate and intensive legal preparation.
