Israel and Hamas reject ICC request for arrest of leaders accused of war crimes | National

Israel and Hamas, engaged in heavy fighting in the Gaza Strip, both on Monday angrily rejected moves to arrest their leaders for war crimes committed in an international court.

International Criminal Court prosecutor Karim Khan said he had requested arrest warrants for top Israeli and Hamas leaders over the conflict.

Israel called the request targeting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Yoav Gallant a “historic shame,” while Palestinian militant group Hamas said it “strongly condemned” the move.
