Iran Foreign Minister Asked the ICC To Take Up the Case of Israeli ‘War Crimes and Genocide’

The Foreign Minister of Iran was not able to attend the special UN Security Council meeting on Palestine, because U.S. authorities failed to grant his visa in time for him to travel. This coincided, curiously, with the announcement by the Iranian Foreign Ministry that they had asked the International Criminal Court to take up the case of Israeli “war crimes and genocide.”

According to a statement issued by Iran’s Foreign Ministry on Nov. 28, “the barbaric bombardment of the Gaza Strip and Israel’s invasion of the enclave, which have left more than 14,000 civilians killed and at least 32,000 wounded, are clear examples of war crimes…. They must be looked at as crimes against humanity and acts of genocide.”
