Israel asks “civilized nations” to reject arrest warrant against leaders

Israel has called on the “nations of the civilized world” to oppose the International Criminal Court prosecutor’s request for arrest warrants against their leaders and to declare that they will not honor such warrants, a government spokesman said on Tuesday. .

Asked whether Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu or Defense Minister Yoav Gallant would avoid traveling to ICC signatory countries if arrest warrants are issued against them, spokesman Tal Heinrich said: “We will wait and see ”.

The International Criminal Court is seeking to issue arrest warrants for Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar and Netanyahu on charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity during the October 7 attacks on Israel and the subsequent war in Gaza, it said the court's chief prosecutor, Karim Khan, at CNN during an exclusive interview with Christiane Amanpour on Monday (20).
