(dailyalert.org, Jan. 6, 2015)
The Israeli legal group Shurat HaDin-Israel Law Center filed lawsuitson Monday at the International Criminal Court against PA Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah, top official Jibril Rajoub, and PA intelligence chief Majed Faraj, all from Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah party, for war crimes, terrorism and human rights offenses. The NGO filed cases against Abbas last November and Hamas leader Khaled Mashal in September 2014.
“Fatah openly boasted in Facebook pages and other media channels that it launched projectiles that caused the injury and death of Israeli civilians – a war crime under international law,” the NGO said. The case against Faraj and Hamdallah details widespread torture and killings of Palestinian residents in areas under PA control. (Times of Israel)
