"Today, as a State party to the Rome Statute, the State of Palestine will submit a referral regarding Israel's deliberate war crimes to Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) Fatou Bensouda".
The latter has also routinely been threatened by the United States and Israel not to make any moves in the ICC.

Malki called the request an important "test" of accountability for the ICC.
"It is vital for the ICC to assume a principled and just stand and open an official, speedy and criminal investigation into Israel's egregious violations being committed throughout occupied Palestine".
According to a Palestinian statement, the so-called "referral" that Riad Malki handed to the court's prosecutors outlines "compelling evidence of the ongoing commission of grave crimes to warrant an immediate investigation".
There was no comment from Israel on the Palestinian move.
The step was sure to worsen the already troubled relations between the internationally backed Palestinian Authority and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's government.
The ICC has been conducting a preliminary probe since 2015 into alleged crimes in the Palestinian territories, including Israel's settlement policy and crimes allegedly committed by both sides in the 2014 Gaza conflict. Israel, if it wanted any charges filed against Palestinians, would have to become a member of the court.

Diana Buttu, a former legal adviser to Palestinian negotiators, told Al Jazeera that while "this has been an option for the PA for quite some time, the significance now is that there is enough pressure on PA President Mahmoud Abbas to do something".
