BNC welcomes ICC jurisdiction decision, calls for action

| BNC |

We call on the International Crimina Court to stop dragging its feet, resist pressure from the US, Israel and Western countries, and immediately do its job.


We welcome the International Criminal Court’s decision affirming jurisdiction over the Occupied Palestinian Territory.

Israel’s apartheid regime has killed over 3,600 Palestinians since the ICC started its preliminary examination of the situation in Palestine.

Enough delay ! #ICC4Israel

The Palestinian BDS National Committee (BNC) welcomes the ICC’s confirmation of jurisdiction over the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT), and we call on the ICC to stop dragging its feet, resist pressure from the US, Israel and Western countries, and immediately do its job.

The ICC must act as an impartial court, fulfil its mandate under the Rome Statute, and investigate Israel’s war crimes and crimes against humanity in the OPT, including the crime of apartheid.

Palestinians cannot afford any more crimes and suffering. Justice delayed is justice denied. The ICC must hold Israel accountable for its decades of crimes against the Palestinian people.
